Since you were in a Dual Boot with Win98 and WinXP, when you installed
XP it placed it's boot loader on the C: drive.
So if you formatted and reinstalled Win98 you wiped the bootloader for
XP. If you didnt format the files might still be there. In Win98 go to
Windows Explorer>Tools>Folder Options>View>Click on Show hidden files and
folders and uncheck
Hide protected operating system files. Then in C:\ look for ntldr,
bootsect.dos, ntdetect.com and boot.ini. If they are there then you can use
the Recovery Console. Check here on its use http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=314058
You will primarily be interested in the commands Bootcfg , Fixboot
