As an aside, using FreeBSD will be MUCH easier to learn and use if you
don't use a lower case letter "o" in place of the numeral "0".

When you say this, do you mean that you installed XP on the 80GB drive,
then added a 4.3GB drive and then installed XP that? Or do you mean you
installed part of XP on the 4.3GB drive and part on the 80GB? Or do you
mean you installed XP on the 4.3GB and the 80GB was an extended
partition containing logical drives, such as D:, E:, F:, G:, etc that
XP had access to?
The answers to these questions determine what must be done in order to
get you back into XP.

You'll have to answer my preceding questions to know the answer to
two questions.
