If you have NTFS for your Windows XP install, you must use PartitionMagic, not Qtparted. Trust me on this.
Qtparted also has some dependencies that may make it hard to install, depending on your distro.
I had to remove Mandrake (PatrtitionMagic was then able to read the drive without errors), re-partition the affected partition(s) with PartitionMagic, then tell Mandrake to use the already existing partition.
Let us know what your current situation is in more detail, before proceding.

Agree. 'Never' use a linux utility on a bootable nt/w2k/xp volume. Probibility of corruption is almost certain. Additionaly, Some recent Linux utilitys have been demonstrating extreme incompatibility with Partition Magic 8.
