Help! Modify my grub file for triple boot?

I currently have Win98SE, Win2KPro, and Fedora Core installed on my system with everything working great. Grub is my boot loader and has 2 options:

1. Fedora Core
2. Windows

When I select option (2. Windows) in Grub it jumps me into my Win2KPro boot loader and then I have to select Win98 from there.

Is there a way to modify Grub (and/or) Win98-2k so that I have 3 choices in Grub to boot each Windows OS seperately without first having to go to Win2K boot loader then select Win98?

My system config:

hdd0 = 2 fat32 partitions (1st=Win98SE, 2nd=Win2KPro)
hdd1 = Fedora (auto partitions during install)

Current Fedora Grub bootloader (grub.conf)
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
title Windows
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Current Win2KPro bootloader (boot.ini)
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
C:\ = "Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition"

NOTE: all 3 OS's were installed in he following order: (Win98, Win2K, Fedora) with all pointing to MBR on C:\

As far as I know, you're doing it the way people recommend if you are not going to use something like System Commander.

I do the same thing if I tripple boot.

It's working great. Why mess with it?
