Question configuring grub

I am running RedHat 8.0, and just stuck in a 2nd hard drive that has Windows ME on it as the secondary master. I'm having problems configuring my grub.conf file to be able to dual-boot. Could someone tell me what I need to put in my grub.conf, or direct me to a gui grub configurator program?

This is my grub.conf, for dual booting with win95.

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title Micro$oft Windows 95
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

You will need to know something about HD/partition naming conventions in grub, they are different than the usuall 'hda1' etc. Everything you need is here:
