Question Adding Hard Drive To Grub Menu

How do I add another Windows XP SATA Hard Drive to this Grub menu? (Puppy Linux on a USB Stick):

timeout 30
default 0
WinXP on HDD
title Windows XP on hard disk
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1
title Puppy on bootable USB
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=usbflash
initrd /initrd.gz
