Booting into Xp safe mode on a Fedora / Xp dual boot mahine

Here is a grub.conf config file to dual boot fedora and Xp. Question is how
would I boot into Xp safe mode ?

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda3
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img
title Windows Xp
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Hit "f8" (I think) once the 'doze boot starts.
