If you mean you have two partitions with XP installed on each, just boot up with Fdisk and delete the unwanted partition.

login to the new install you just made, then go to start, run, type msconfig, go to boot.ini and click check all boot paths and it will ask you to remove the invalid one, click yes and thats it
