Mulktibooting, Linux & Win98

I get an ERROR 13 when I try to multiboot with Windows 98 using GRUB boot loader. Here's the configuration:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img

title Windows 98
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Can anyone please tell me what's wrong? thank you

You are telling your boot loader that your windows boot partition as well as linux boot partition are (hd0,0) which obviously wont work. I think in the rootnoverify line, you should say (hd1,0) if windows is on the second hd. Or (hd0,5) if it is on /dev/hda6 for instance. In the latter case you wont need the map lines under the windows title.

Note: Assuming linux is indeed on (hd0,0). Post your partition tables 'fdisk -l /dev/hdX' if this doesn't work.
