What does the reply say? Also what bootloader are you using? WinXP Partition Magic? or Ubuntu GRUB? which I think is the default.
Most probably you have the wrong partition! Google! If you installed Ubuntu properly you should be able to "see" it

Unless you used something like Wubi, Ubuntu is not a proper "program" but an operating system. It will be installed on a separate partition, so XP will see a "partition" (from within MMC's Drive Management console) but will not see a "file".

To uninstall this type of install, boot the Ubuntu disc, remove the partition, and reboot. Then using the XP disc, use Recovery Console and run "fixmbr".
