I'm stuck in OS X!

OK, here's the story so far:

I needed to test some software under OS X intel so I got my old 10.4.3 CD out and installed it. Install went fine.

 

OS X booted the first time fine and I tried to boot windows using startup disk. That worked to. That's when I started having problems.

 

After that, I couldn't get OS X to boot so I set the active partition using something that came with partition magic to make partition 2 active. I managed to boot OS X but now I can't get out of it. Startup disk only sees OS X, it doesn't see partition 1 - windows.

 

Please help :(

Oh, I forgot to say:

 

Whenever I try and boot windows it almost gets to the login screen (or somewhere around there, my XP load screen is broken - long story) and then it resets. I'm guessing this is something to do with the active partition thing. It was working fine before.

 

Anyway, I tried (in terminal):

fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0s1
> flag 1

but it doesn't seem to have done anything :D

 

Any suggestions?
