Arrow Adding Slack 10.0 to Grub.conf??

I have 2 HDD in my box
Drive A==>Xp
Drive B==>Fedora Core2
I have heard good things about Slack and would like to try it. I have downloaded the ISOs and im now ready to install. Can anyone tell me what are the lines that I have to add to my Grub.conf file to be able to boot into Slack. Below is my Grub.conf file;

splashimage=(hd1, 0) /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
Title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
root (hd1, 0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-

title 0ther
rootnoverify (hd0, 0)
thanks in advance

Say, if you install slackware in /dev/hdb3 and /boot is in same partition :

title Slackware 10
root (hd1, 2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hdb3
