You can try running chkdsk /r on it from the XP Recovery Console.

Yea what you need to do if the computer reboots is Install a OEM XP license and run a REPAIR on the partition.

Once you install the cd it will take you to the windows setup and then you need to choose R for REPAIR. Then it will take you to a black screen and just type 'help' FOR commands. However if you type AFTER C:/ Check dsk / R
it should repair your boot problems, and then it should restart in normal boot mode and it should work, takes like 10-30 min depends and hard drive size and sectors damaged.
