Fedora Core 3 Dual Boot, Dual Hard drives, Grub Boot Loader

I have installed FC3 on a Seagate IDE hard drive but I also have two other SATA hard drives, one of which has XP pro on it. How do I configure the GRUB for dual boot? I was unable to see the other SATA hd with XP on it during the initial install because linux doesn't support the SATA yet. Will I still be able to dual boot?

I do about the same thing with two hard drives. This is my grub.conf:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd1,4)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sdb5
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.766_FC3)
root (hd1,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.766_FC3 vga=ask ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.10-1.766_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
root (hd1,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 vga=793 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
title Windows
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

As you can see, it was generated by anaconda when I installed FC3.

Have a lot of fun
