Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go.
Correct me if I'm wrong:
You still have your XP partition, but now there is a blank FAT32 partition which used to be for your Linux partition, right?
If that is so, you will need a Windows 98 boot-up floppy disk. Start the computer with the disk in the drive. Press "Without CD-ROM support" when the option comes up. When it finishes and you see the "A:\" prompt, type "fdisk" and press enter. Your computer will ask you 1 or 2 questions, press "y" for both. In the menu that appears, there will be 4 choices. Choose the one that says "set active partition". I think it is number 2. Choose your main partition, the one that is NTFS, and now it will be made active IF IT ISN'T ALREADY. If it is already active, then this will not solve your problem. We will have to do something else. Once you are done, press the Escape button until you go back to the "A:\" prompt. Restart your computer by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete.
Let me know how it goes.
