I failed at dual booting Fedora and Windows XP on an Aspire One ao751h. Please help?

I have just installed Fedora 12 on a 10GB partition separate from the pre-existing Windows XP partition. My problem is that when I turn on my aspire one ao751h it doesn't give me the option to boot Windows XP even though when I mount the partition with XP on it the files are all still there. I think it has something to do with GRUB which I have never dealt with before or the way I set up the partitions when installing Fedora 12. How would I change the start-up screen to allow me to boot from my XP partition as well?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I attached an image showing how my partitions are set up. Attachment 2621

Does your grub have a choice named "Other" at the bottom of the list? That would be the one to choose to start Windows. If it doesn't, post the output of cat /boot/grub/grub.conf.

Sounds like you're missing your windows in grub.conf. If you haven't checked it yet you should have a look.

Alternativly the autoboot timer (or whatever it's called) is set to 0 forcing grub to boot straight into fedora.

Either case, have a look at your grub.conf.
