I've made a mess of it. I think the only option left is to boot from the
FC3 DVD, go for a new install, repartition with Anaconda deleting the
first two partitions, and leaving free space at the very beginning for
Win XP while recreating the /boot partition in /dev/hda2. Then exiting
before FC3 begins to install. Hopefully I can then get WinXP to boot
from the CD.
Too tired to do this now so will try it 2moro
Thanks to everybody for their suggestions.
