Exclamation win2k rh7.3 triple boot

hi, i want to triple boot rh7.3 win me and 2k using grub, the curent grub.conf is:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-3)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda9 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-3.img

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

since i installed win2k later the win2k boot loader menu appears when i choose win me, the question is how to add win2k to grub so each OS loads from grub directly????

this is the fdisk output:

Disk /dev/hdd: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 1292 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdd1 * 1 1 0 0 Empty
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:
phys=(0, 0, 0) should be (0, 239, 63)
/dev/hdd2 2 1292 9759960 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hdd5 2 1292 9759928+ b Win95 FAT32

Disk /dev/hda: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 5169 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 1293 9775048+ c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2 1294 5169 29302560 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5 1294 2586 9775048+ b Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda6 3231 3879 4906408+ b Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda7 3880 5169 9752368+ b Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda8 2587 2593 52888+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda9 2594 3178 4422568+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda10 3179 3230 393088+ 82 Linux swap

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Note: grub is on the MBR and win2k is on hdd5.

Unfortunately, with the fine Windows family of operating systems you can only boot win9.x (yes, ME is 9.x basically) and win2k from the m$ boot loader...
