booting win2k AFTER linux

I have linux suse on my pc on a primary disk and a win2k installed on another machine. I moved the disk but i dongt know how to make the windows bootable from the grub. supposedly if the grub permitted the windows to load then it will be all fine as the entire os is installed on a slave disk (linux primary). Please Help.

There are lots of threads about this on the forum. You basically need to add a new section to grub.conf like:
title Windows 2000
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
