How to install Fedora after Solaris in XP

Hi To All.
I have Preinstalled Xp on my system.
I have installed Solaris in one of my unused partition.
when i installed the fedora 12 i didnot get the options for solaris booting though i have used different partition for solaris and fedora.
How can i get the options for solaris or else i have made a mistake in installing fedora. In either case please guide me though how irritating it may be to guide a newbie.
Also if i want to use Archlinux with all three above how can i do it.

Hi, it is likely that Solaris was just not added to the grub configuration.

I would advise trying the following, replacing hd0,0 for the related drive and partition (noting that it starts at drive and partition 0, so if it is the 3rd partition on the 1st hard drive it would be hd0,2. The grub configuration file will likely either be /boot/grub/menu.lst or /boot/grub/grub.conf

title Solaris
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

I found this here
