Unhappy Getting 64-bit GRUB to boot Windows XP on a second HD?

Hi all,

I'm new here, so first I'll start with an intro.

I'm running Linux Fedora Core 5 x86_64 on an AMD athlon 64 3200+ board. Which leads me to my first question!!

I would very much like to run Windows XP SP2 32-bit as a secondary OS. I have Fedora Core 5 64-bit on a SATA drive so that it will boot. I have Windows XP on an IDE drive set as master. As it is, Linux will boot, but the GRUB Bootloader doesn't see windows as being there.

Without reinstalling either of the systems, how would I get it to Dual boot? Is there some scripting I can add to the GRUB, or is it more sinister, lol?!
