Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

need your help.
Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes

Which Windows entry you should use depends on which drive you are booting on start up, and also you didn't mention which NTFS partition has Windows on it. It looks like XP might be on sda1, so how about trying:
title Windows XP (hd0)
title Windows XP (hd1)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
If neither of those work, let me know what exactly happens when you try them from the Grub menu.
