I have the grub menu come up and launch into XP from there.
I'd suggest booting to the rescue disk and trying something like the
following to boot to the grub menu first.
chroot to /mnt/sysimage
run grub to get the grub> prompt
setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0) (hd1,1)
See how that goes. Also you could try the grub-install command line as
follows from the chrooted sysimage.
grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda
