I've recently been having problems with Windows XP, and I decided to re-install XP. How can I do this without affecting Ubuntu?

when you reinstall XP, grub will be overwritten by the windows bootloader. you will just need to reinstall grub.

When installing XP, make sure to only install to the partition that you want it on, and not onto your ubuntu partition.
