seriously though I am going to reinstall Ubuntu..

my partitions are down to:

Partition File System Label Size Used

/dev/sda1 NTFS Windows XP 76.01 GIB 66.82 MIB

unalloted unallotted ---- ----

after rebooting and putting the Windows XP CD in it gave me error 22

what can i do to resolve it?

It seems that you are saying that you can boot into Windows but upon inserting the CD you get the error?

Error code explanation :

Code 22 The text displayed for this error code differs depending on the circumstances.

If this device is disabled because you disabled it using Device Manager, the following text is displayed:
This device is disabled. (Code 22)

Click Enable Device to enable this device.
Solution button: Enable Device
If the device is not started, the following text is displayed:
This device is not started. (Code 22)

Click Start Device to start this device.

Solution button: Start Device
If the device is disabled by a driver or program, the following text is displayed:
This device is disabled. (Code 22)

You can't enable this device because it has been disabled by a Windows driver.
Solution button: None

This code means that the device is either disabled or has not started.

To resolve this error code, follow the recommended solution. For the third case, try removing the device in Device Manager, then redetecting it using the Add New Hardware wizard. If the problem persists, try a clean boot to rule out software interference. If the error persists, contact the hardware manufacturer.
