This did *NOT* fix anything on my system. All of the repair options I
tried with WinXP 'seemed' to work properly. I tried Fixboot, fixmbr,
bootcfg, and even fdisk /mbr... But when trying to boot back into XP it
still could not find the OS.

BTW, this problem box has two 120GB hdd's. This box I am using now has
two 40GB drives, and has not exhibited the problem. Dual booting with
Win XP has worked fine. Does the drive size have anything to do with
this?

Luckily, I was of a mind to go strictly linux on that box anyway.
Bye-bye XP!
