GRUB read error with dual boot with XP


I just installed RH 9 and used grub as the default boot loader. I have Xp on the 80 gig primary and RH9 installed on a 20 gb slave. i had installed xp first and now after ive installed rh9 when i come to the boot choice screen GRUB brings up an error saying GRUB read error. I tried reinstalling and using lilo but had no luck. I can get into linux using a boot disk but would like dual boot to work properly. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Joel

here is my current GRUB.conf file
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
title XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


any help would be great
cheers
joel
