HI. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.
ok. heres exactly what happen step by step.

I installed red hat linux 9.0 with the LILO boot loader. afterwards, i didnt like the way LILO looks, so i serched online and found a way to install the GRUB bootloader. so, i just installed the grub bootloader using the following command:
grub-install /dev/hda

the install was successul. BUT afterwards, when i rebooted, i STILL see the LILO boot loader there (probably because i didnt remove it or something) and after i clicked on the DOS boot, it loads up the GRUB loader. i repeatedly clicked on the DOS, but the GRUB loader just reloads itself and i was unable too boot into windows xp. so frustrated, i started to mess around with the edit options on the GRUB boot loader. i did something really wierd. somehow, i got to a DOS-like prompt in GRUB and i typed this in:
rootnoverify (hd0)

i dunno why i did that. well, i still cant boot into windows and i dunno what to do. i checked the hardware settings in linux and it shows /dev/hda1 and my NTFS partition there
