installed fedora 2...and now windows won't boot!


i just installed fedora 2 on my second hard drive. now, when i try to boot into windows xp (installed on my other hard drive) my computer just hangs and doesn't ever boot into windows.

when i installed fedora, i went with the dual boot option. the commands listed under windows are:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

i'd really love some advance on how to enable my computer to boot back into windows. thanks.

I've, unfortunately, seen lots of these in the last weeks.

What happens? Do you have a Windows option in Grub (the bootloader)? Does it just refuse to boot Windows? If so, this may be the solution:

I haven't seen this myself, but it appears that it's not only affecting people upgrading from the test version of Fedora.
