You need to use a boot manager to decide which OS to boot into when you start the computer. Ubuntu has GRUB (or maybe GRUB2). I don't know how you set up your ubuntu install, but it sounds like the Ubuntu has overidden the Windows Master Boot Record. You should be able to set GRUB to give you a choice b/w booting Ubuntu or XP. You may have to restore the XP boot files if they were overwritten.

How are your partitions set up?
