Triple boot?

I have a problem with grub boot loader... I have 3 systems on my 2 disks (SATA WD 200GB, Samsung ATA 120GB) on the SATA drive I have Windows xp (2 partitions, one is the system partition the other for stuff) and on the ATA drive I have Windows 64 and Fedora Core 4 x86_64.

Now the problem is that I can boot windows 64 and FC4 with no problems, but if I chose to boot the windows xp... it still boots windows 64 (:confused: ) my grub.conf is:

title Fedora Core (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.img
title Windows xp 64bit
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title Windows xp
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

I can boot the windows xp if I set the SATA drive as the boot drive in bios, but I'm fed up with having to change the bios settings every time I want to log in win xp.

And another problem... when FC reboots my computer, it stops booting when bios comes to checking for drives installed...(:confused: ) (I have the bios set to auto detect the drives)


CPU: AMD Athlon64 3000+
Bios version: 2.20 (up to date)
GFX: Ati Radeon 9800pro
HDs: SATA WD 200GB, ATA Samsung 120GB

Any ideas?

Because you have xp on the second drive when Windows always wants to be on the first drive, you need to use map in the grub.
title Windows xp
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
