Grub Question


I am learning the basics of grub and I have a question that I cannot find a direct answer to. Here is my grub file

Code:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.23.15-137.fc8)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.15-137.fc8 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.23.15-137.fc8.img
title Fedora (2.6.23.1-42.fc8)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-42.fc8 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.23.1-42.fc8.img
grub.conf
However, I only see the first entry in my menu list "Fedora (2.6.23.15-137.fc8)" when my grub menu comes up. I eventually want to boot from another hard disk which has XP installed, but I was curious why the other kernel entry "title Fedora (2.6.23.1-42.fc8)" doesn't show. I added a line to this conf file "title XP" just to see if that would appear in the menu, but it does not.

Anyone know why this is?

That is what the hiddenmenu keyword means. Take out hiddenmenu and you will see your complete menu.
