You need the XP CD to knowck off Linux. However, I dont think this is an issue with linux. Try running a repair install of XP and see if that resolves the issue...

Never used the 6 disk not sure if they do allow you to do things like fix mbr, ,but downloaded the file to created them, something else to play with .
the wwwbootdisk link takes you here ,http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310994 , should be able to use the new xp to fix the mbr on you machine as long as it a full version xp and the same version as the one you have on the machine now.and not a recovery winxp disk .like the ones from Dell and other makers.
