For what it's worth, I have three XP machines in my office, and all three of them say the same thing, and they do not have Linux installed anywhere.
The reason for having two choices for searching the C: drive may not be apparent to a user who only has the one drive (C:). The reason the choices are in there becomes apparent when you look at a computer that has several drives. If you have several drives and you want to conduct a search, then you have the choice of "Local Hard Drives C:, F:, X:" (or whatever the drive letters are)-meaning windows will search ALL of the drives, and then a little lower on the list you have the choice of searching each drive individually: "Local Disk C:", "Local Disk F:", "Local Disk X:"
In your case if you only have the one drive you now have two choices "Local Hard Drive C:", and a little lower on the list you also have "Local Disk C:". That is normal.
