Thanks for the quick response. I actually found this out on my own. When I posted this, I rebooted and started experimenting. My modified grub.conf looks like this:
title Windows XP Pro
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
When I booted from the command, if I put "makeactive" in it just locks, if I leave it out it comes right into XP. I thought, wrongly I guess, that when you used "map" you were changing the way the hd's were referenced, that's why I used "root (hd0,1)".
Well, it's always the simple things
Thanks again for your response.
