    Boot into your XP Recovery CD, open a console, and run
    Code:
    fixmbr
    That will restore the windows boot loader. You can then delete the Ubuntu partition from Windows ( Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Manager )

    Just reinstall Windows XP and overwrite the disk that Ubuntu is stored on i would recommend backing up your data first though for XP before doing a reinstillation.

    If you have the install disk, you can still run commands - see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654

    1. start the cd
    2. press 'r' to boot into recovery
    3. run fixmbr to restore windows xp bootloader
