XP does have a boot manager.

Note that you must use the FAT file system, not NTFS.

For a few (tens of) bucks, you can get a copy of Partition Magic and set
a DOS partition on the hard drive, and then all will be well.  For that 
matter, I'm not sure XP doesn't have its own boot manager that will do
same trick.
