am having problems with the windows xp boot cd . here is how it all started

I had three partitions in my hard disk

1.ubuntu hardy in ext2 xp in ntfs
3.ntfs data

i made an attempt to format the hardy partition and installed fedora 10 from my usb drive which went successful. but after my installation i was unable to boot into the windows os which gave me the error

"system32/hall.dll corrupt or missing"

to solve this i am now tryin to boot from my xp boot cd , which freezes at the step "detecting hardware config of ur system"

can anyone please suggest me how to solve this problem? am pretty sure that my cd drive is fine and so is my xp disk!!

thanks in advance

You should be able to boot to Ubuntu, mount the windows drive & the CDROM, then copy the file to the system32 directory.
