Question No XP in GRUB


I am a newbie to Linux just to let you know, also a new user at this site. But anyways, I recently got a new computer and I bought an extra drive to put in it. I installed the new drive then installed Red Hat 9 and GRUB as the bootloader. I think it runs from /dev/hdb (should it anways?) and I have 2 options; Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Linux-up. How can I get it to have Windows XP and will it be able to access that drive and boot it after choosing it? Please help, cuz this newb is dumb!

/boot/grub/grub.conf looks like this

#grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
#Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
#Notice: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd1, 0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd1, 0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-6smp)
root (hd1, 0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6smp ro root=LABEL=/hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-6smp.img
title Red Hat Linux-up (2.4.20-6)
root (hd1, 0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-6 ro root=LABEL=/hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-6.img

the df -a looks like this
