Angry dual boot issue which won't go away

Hello friends

I have two hard disks sitting in my red hat 9 box.

Primary master red hat 9 with grub isntalled.
Primary slave with Win 98 and winnt server dual boot.
I have tried what was suggested in the forums.

title windows
rootnoverify (hd1,0)

This was done in grub.conf and at bootup, it did go to the second hard disk, but came up with error that ntldr was not found.
I have checked under win 98 and the bootloader is there, but it does not get to bootloader.

Any ideas would be helpful at this stage.

I think win98 wants to be drive 1 partition one so you will need to use the map command to fool it.

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

I have never tried it and don't know your RH, so read the grub manual for info if above fails.
