    I don't believe Windows XP home has Disk Manager, so you are going to have to boot up into your Windows XP disk and go to the partition manager, and delete the French WinXP partition.

    Oh and you might want to boot into the recovery console after that and do a "fixmbr" command, just so you dont use the french bootloader.

    Once you delete the French partition, If the French menu still show up at boot; go to the start select "run" and enter msconfig. Click on the boot tab and then delete the French command.
