Get your XP install disk and boot into recovery mode. You then want to run fixmbr to restore the master boot record. This will mean GRUB will be removed from the MBR and will no longer be bootable.

Using the Recovery Console to Replace the MBR (http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/Default.asp?url=/resources/documentation/Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/prkd_tro_ldau.asp)
