Can you pass windows xp boot switches thru Grub?


I've setup a multiboot system with Red Hat 9 running on one partition and windoze xp running on another. I'm using Grub to boot and everything is working fine, however I have a question. I'm wondering if it's possible to pass windows boot switches (/noguiboot /basevideo /bootlog....) when I select it to boot? I know how to do this using the windows boot loader but can't figure it out with Grub.

Any suggestions? (thx in advance)

That worked. I put the switches in the boot.ini file in c:\ and they executed when I launched XP.

Thanks egag.
