My Window XP can not load

I installed Red Hat Linux 7.2 on my second Hard
Drive (Primary Slave) in dual boot configuration 
Win XP/Linux. My Win XP Pro resides in the first 
Hard Drive (Primary Master)

On Boot Loader Configuration, I SHOULD set GRUB on
dev/hda1 First Sector of Boot Partition.
Since this is the first time installing Linux
and I am in the stage of learning linux, I instead
set GRUB record on 
dev.hda (Master Boot Record) MBR

The problem is that I cannot get in Win XP, eventhough
on GRUB window I am given the choice of 
Red Hat Linux
DOS (which is Win XP)
I can get in linux and log in as root or any
user that I was created.

I find some info online that we can overwrite
the boot loader and then install boot loader
for Window by
run fdisk / MBR on Windows
If this is the way, how can I do that? 

So far, I set my CDROM boot first on BIOS. I
try to boot Window XP CD in hope to install
recovery console, but I always get in GRUB
window instead. If, however, I put in Linux
CD, it will load the CD and prompt for
Linux installation. 

Here is info from GRUB Version 0.90 Window

Red Hat Linux 2.4.7-10
root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=dev/hdb2 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img

rootnoverify (hd0,6)
chainloader +1
