Especially for the boot partition, what filesystem did you use...and did you elect to install grub to the master boot record?
Finally, are you using and ide hard drive or sata?

So, since XP always wants to be first, installing XP first, then installing Mandrake 10.1 would work easily.
I think this is what ceejay949 was trying to avoid.
If you have to use Mandrake 10 and XP, it is easier to install XP, use PartitionMagic (or another utilty) to make a fat32 partition after the NTFS partition (say to use for a data file to hold files needed to be accesses by both OS'), then install Mandrake 10. Grub or lilo will be able to boot both XP and Mandrake without a problem.
