Boot loader configuration


im installing 2 OS on my PC:
(1)RedHat9 on PRIMARY IDE [MASTER] - HDA

- /boot = hda1
- / = hda2
-/swap = hda3

(2)Win2K Pro on PRIMARY IDE [SLAVE] - HDB

my grub boot loader conf id:
default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
title Win2K
rootnotify(hd1,0)
chainloader +1
boot

1st thing i want to know.....can i do like that?

The faced problem is when i boot my pc, then i select the Win2K to boot windows...its shown:
=========================
booting "Win2K"

rootnotify(hd1,0)
chainloader +1
boot
=========================

and then stuck there....

1. 'boot' is not needed
2. probably Win has a problem to boot from second drive so add
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
