Default xp installs and dun run, linux installs and runs .. im confused

ok, i posted this in the operating system area too, but not getting many replies, ok, so as some ppl kno my 80 gig hdd mest up so i am now RMA'ing it, and rite now i ahve a 40 gig, that i was using as secondary drive, anyways, i went to install win xp, and it got thru the first part, wehre it formats and copies some files from cd to hdd, then it restarts, but when it restarts, its supposed to boot from hdd and finish up the install, but insted, it gives an error, error loading operating system, and das dat, so i then installed linux SuSe 9.2, and it worked fine ... i dunno why either, cuz if the comp cant load win xp, shouldnt it not be able to load linux either? im confused, but soon im going to get my 80 gig hdd back, hopefuly that solves my problem but any suggestions before then would be greatly appreciated.
