Unhappy Grub/Redhat/XP hang problem

I'm running Redhat 8 with an XP dual boot. When grub loads itself up and I choose XP, it just shows the grub code for booting XP (rootnoverify hd(0,0) and chainloader +1) then hangs. Any grub code missing that should be in there? Anything that I could have changed in the bios that would affect this?

Does /etc/grub.conf say:

rootnoverify hd(0,0)

Like you said or does it say:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)

If your grub file says the first case, that might be wrong. Try changing it to the second case. Also, if you put the windowsXP bootloader some place weird that might be your problem as well.

Grub had a problem for me when I had the RH7.2/Win98 setup. I ended up creating a new chain for the Win98 option

rootnoverify hda1(or whatever harddrive it is)
blahblahblah. I lost my sheet with what I wrote down, but try searching for the commands to do it without the automated chain, and then you can write that in for a custom chain.
