GRUB error with Windows XP and Papuglinux


Hi,

I just installed PapugLinux on a machine to duel boot with XP, but I can't get it to work. XP is on hda1, linux on hda5.

The contents of menu.1st is below.

default 0
timeout 15

#splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

# PapugLinux x86 Kernel
title=PapugLinux x86
root (hda5,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.20.15 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda5 vga=0x318 video=vesafb:mtrr,ywrap
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.20.15

title=Windows XP
rootnoveriy (hda0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

Any help would be welcome.

It should look like this:
Quote:
#splashimage=(hd0,4)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

# PapugLinux x86 Kernel
title=PapugLinux x86
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.20.15 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/hda5 vga=0x318 video=vesafb:mtrr,ywrap
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.20.15

title=Windows XP
rootnoveriy (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
Note: there are three corrections: in the splashimage line, the root line of PapugLinux, and the rootnoverify line of XP.
