Angry Dual Boot Linux and Windows 98 SE


I have two drives on my computer. I am running red hat linux 7.2 with grub as my boot loader. I have linux installed on my Primary master drive and win98 on my Primay Slave. I installed linux after I had installed win98 and gurb saw I had a second hardirve with windows on it so it put this in grub
title Windows 98
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

in the grub.conf

When I boot the computer the grub menu comes up but when I select Windows 98 I get a black screen with the text
Windows 98
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader + 1

and it never boot windows it just sits there with that text.
What is the problem and how do I fix it.

Add map lines to it and see if it works. Like this:

title Windows 98
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
