Hi mzahdeh,
Yes you can do that but the second issue depends on how you are triple booting. What kind of a boot manager are you using? If you are using boot.ini from XP then you can just take the linux line out of the equation. Otherwise you can do a fixmbr with XP from the recovery console if you are using GRUB.

boot up with your XP disc, choose "repair" and use the "recovery console." Log in then use "fixmbr"
