The problem is that he cannot boot into XP.
So this means that there must be a problem with the boot files of winXP. And this can be fixed by using the XP CD and the recovery console.
I agree with you that after running the XP CD the grub menu may be erased, but I think that the correct order would be for him to repair first the boot of XP and then to log in through a live CD of Zorin and re-instate the grub menu.
At least this is my understanding. What do you think?

yes we are both thinking along the same lines but it may be that GRUB has caused tthe problem in the first place and may be needed to be re-installed to correct the problem!!.
