    Linux 6.2? You mean, Red Hat 6.2? Is it possible you erased Windows XP (do you know if it still exists?).

    It sounds like, when you installed, you told linux to put the boot portion on floppy rather than on the hard drive (MBR or first sector). Do you remember which one you did?

    It sounds like you've rid yourself of your xp
    Linux is actually a wonderful environment so try it out, but if you want to have both:
    partition your hard drive into two parts and install xp to one and linux to the other, then at your boot screen you will be able to select your os

    For Linux help try this:
