Exclamation XP, Vista, and SuSE in tri-boot


I have XP Pro, SuSE 10.2, and Vista Ultimate on 3 different partitions on the same drive (sda1, sda2, and sda3, respectively). Since I like the default SuSE bootloader, I would like to stay with it. I've messed around with the bootloader and have added the appropriate entries, but when I try and boot to Windows, it doesn't work. Is there something special I must do to make this all "Just Work?"

Please try and lay it on me easy...

The community needs more information than you have given. Show us the windows entries from /boot/grub/menu.lst. Also, tell us which OS is installed into which partition.

I apologize. Here is the exact text from the file:

I believe I've said this in my previous post.

XP is on sda1
SuSE is on sda2
Vista is on sda3
