grub/dual boot problem/question...

rebuilt my system installed WinXP first on slave drive without master drive connected..connected master drive and installed debian..installed grub to mbr ..grub saw windows so I figured all was good..nope when I select windows from grub menu .this is what I get
chainloader +1
then it just sits not locked up just does not progress
If I disconnect master drive windows loads linux I can see my second partition on my windows drive but not the primary cause its ntfs

Try rewriting the root= line: root=(hd1,0) is the correct way to tell grub 'second hard disk; first partition'.
If it still doesn't work, try adding lines to remap the drives for grub. Add these lines after the title line for the windows entry:
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
