Just a guess, never having played with Bootmagic, but from their instructions here: http://www.le.ac.uk/cc/dsss/docs/pm4-boot.shtml it doesn't appear that the program deals with NTFS, which is what your Windows XP is based on. I think you should reinstall and use GRUB as your default. Or, you could install GRUB after the fact using these instructions: http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=85818 (see Sailor's instructions).

Good luck!
