Angry GRUB windows xp not booting


Hi
I installed Redhat 8 on a Windows XP machine with a dual boot, everything was working well until I removed Redhat and installed Slackware. Now it does not boot to Windows XP but boots to Slackware. If I try to boot to XP it stops at the screen printing "GRUB".
Can some one help me with this problem.
Thanks
Mirage.........

Here is my grub.conf file:

default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title Win XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

check to see if you have the last 3 lines in yours?
