grub multiboot help


I have two hard drive, one SATA and one IDE. I installed winxp on SATA before. Now I installed fedora core 5 on IDE drive. But grub cannot boot winxp.

my grub looks like this:

default=0
timeout=7
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img
title WinXp
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1


I tried to change the menu.lst. But it did not work.

Who knows the right way? 3X!

Windows won't boot off a secondary drive - change it to;
Code:
title WinXp
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
(watch the imbedded blanks)
