NTLDR missing during grub run when ubuntu 8.4 is in disk0 and win 2003 is in disk1


UBUNTU 8.04 help needed urgently!!!

1) Getting NTLDR missing (for Win 2003 grub listing) during grub run when ubuntu 8.4 is in disk0 and win 2003 is in disk1

Following is the /boot/grub/menu.lst extract:
title Ubuntu 8.04.1 kernel 2.6.24-21-generic
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz=2.6.24.21-generic root=UUID=bf5388e0-3666b-4c96-9826-8192aa519618 ro quiet splash
initrd ./boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-21-generic
quiet

title Windows Server 2003
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
root (hd1,0)
chainloader +1
makeactive

2) Also, I offloaded /home directory to another partition (from the main UBUNTU partition 1 on Disk1), modified /etc/fstab and added '/dev/sda2 /home ext3 nodev, nosuid 0 2', but still get the .dmrc error! /home does not get mounted and I cannot access /home/[usr] space...

Don't you want something like this with rootnoverify?
Code:
title		Windows Server 2003
rootnoverify	(hd1,0)
map 		(hd0) (hd1)
map 		(hd1) (hd0)
makeactive
chainloader 	+1

Below are my notes/steps for moving home away from the / partition to it's own. Maybe it will shed some light, step #5 takes care of all links which is where I'm guessing things went wrong.
Code:
As root or sudo in single user mode:
1: #mkdir /mnt/newhome
2: #fdisk -l   (to find device name of partition)
3: #mount -t ext3 /dev/???? /mnt/newhome (replace check marks in /dev/xxxx as per output of fdisk -l command)
4: #cd /home
5: #cp -ax * /mnt/newhome
6: #cd /
7: #rm -fr /home
8: #umount /mnt/newhome
9: #mv /mnt/newhome /home
10: #vim /etc/fstab (edit /etc/fstab with favorite editor if not vim, and add line below with proper /dev/xxxx)
11: /dev/???? /home ext3 defaults 1 2
12: re-boot
