Angry XP Dual Boot Issue


I'm not sure what the problem is. I have XP installed on Hard Drive 1. I have a second empty hard drive that I installed Red Hat 9 on. I was planning on using GRUB to dual-boot my computer. But when installing Linux, Red Hat did not recognize my hda or XP.

I took a look at my /var/log/dmesg and noticed the following error repeated:

hda: read_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: read_intr: error=0x10 { SectorIdNotFound }, LBAsect=78156105, sector=78156042

etc.

So where did I screw up and is there a way I can save myself?!
