Windows XP and RnR

I posted a problem involving dual-booting kubuntu and xp but it got moved to the Linux section...I guess one of the point I'm concerning about is that RnR seem to have its own bootloader and write to MBR separately.  I tried to leave the first partition to be strictly for booting (or in Windows term the "system partition") while my XP program in D:\  


Does RnR think it should belong in the first partition?  I had a service partition leftover from the factory Vista that I wiped, which during my XP install it seem to be the first partition (S:\)  I left it alone and Windows seem to converted to my C:\ and Windows at D:\


I guess RnR installed the service into the first partition but can't boot itself since XP's bootloader is occupying that partition


Any way to get around this?
