Hiding boot options with GRUB?

Is it possible to hide a boot option under GRUB? I'd like to be able, e.g., to have GRUB show FedoraCore 1's two kernels I have but not show my WinXP boot, but I would still like to be able to boot into Windows. I haven't tried it, but I figured that I could remember the bootline command and then edit the boot prompt to boot my secret option. Will this work? Is there a simpler way?

"Is there a simpler way?"

As an experiment you could leave the title blank on the Windows title.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
