I was previously using dual boot, Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04. I reinstalled XP since i had virus problems. Since that it doesnt show the Ubuntu GRUB and i cant log on to the OS. Please tell me how to fix this issue, so that i get back the Ubuntu boot option.

You need to reinstall grub - the livecd will do that for you
