If it's a damaged file system case then:-
1.Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.
6.At the command prompt, type exit , and then press ENTER to restart your computer.

Not sure whether the SuperGrub disk will solve your situation. If it does not, you could try to free up some space on your hard drive by re-sizing the current partition on your hard drive (so that you do not lose your data) and then install UBUNTU in the free space created. Try to leave a minimum of 5GB for UBUNTU 10GB is better.
Once you have installed UBUNTU follow the instructions in the WIKI starter guide to make your windows partition accessible.Source(s): http://www.ubuntu.com https://help.ubuntu.com/community/burnin... http://partitionlogic.org.uk/ http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/ubuntu_edgy... http://www.ubuntuforums.org http://supergrub.forjamari.linex.org/ http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/linu... http://www.linux.org/dist/ http://www.linuxquestions.org http://www.linuxforums.org http://www.beryl-project.org/
