    Installation of windows xp (or any windows) removes the MBR and adds its own MBR.

    What you have to do is , start linux installation again ,
    Setup will detect previous installation of linux and it will prompt to install boot loader generally its Grub(redhat) which loads linux .

    Now you will be able to see the loader at boot.

    All you need to do is reinstall the boot loader ....

    Pop in the redhat cd ... choose upgrade, don't make any changes to the installed software, and you will then get an option to install the boot loader.

    Or try XOSL (eXtended OS Loader)

    - get explore2fs , which is free
    - locate ur linux partition with it
    - copy the vmlinuz file from /boot in linux to any folder in windows 98 ie fat 32 partition
    - use loadlin to boot into linux from win98 dos prompt .
    - grub option is widely used , but if ur a novice and dont want to fiddle too much with higly sensitive mbr , choose loadlin . there is a loadlin c version for new kernels . works gr8
    - even if u have a prob with windows x next time , u can always access ur linux partition with explore2fs and loadlin .
