Grub not listing WinXP in dual boot setup


I have just installed fedoracore4 and grub doesn't list my winXP OS in the boot launcher. How do I configure grub so that it lists winXP?

Open your console and become root (su: root password).
Type: vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
Then add following lines at the end:

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Save vi file
This will work if your Windows are installed on Primary Master HD.
If it's not change numbers in (hd0,0) appropriately.

Happy surfing!
