Redownload it, put it on a new cd, put that in your drive and restart the computer...

I have linux dual booted with XP for a while.. didn't really do anything with it.. until windows crashed

Well, then get rid of xp and just put on linux

I had to do alot of stuff to transfer my files between them though..

OH, I know what I did!

Windows Crashed and I wanted all my stuff.. So I installed Ubuntu on it, and about 2 weeks later I finally got most of my files off of it... I had a 10gb (old) had with ubuntu on it and I used my 60gb ipod to get all the stuff off.. I have a post for that about a year ago lol
