Unhappy mutli boot grub.. made me a scrub

I just recently installed Red Hat Linux 7.3 on my system. I installed it on my third scsi drive and I believe this is the issue. I saw something that says if you have scsi drives that the mbr needs to be on the first scsi drive or grub can be problematic?? Well.. the install went fine.. when I went to reboot, grub came up, but the only option was linux red hat.. I no longer see my win2k or winxp for boot options. I'm positive that they are still there, I just am not sure if I can add them to grub for boot up. Anyway to fix this problem is greatly appreciated!!

thx.. E

In order to access your windows partitions you should add, in grub configuration file /boot/grub/menu.lst the following entries:

title = Microsoft Windows (tm)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
unhide (hd1,0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

that numbers assume that your windows hd is located in secondary master, if thats not your actual situation change the numbers ...
hd0,0 - hd in primary master
hd1,0 - hd in secondary master
hd2,0 - hd in primary slave
hd3,0 - hd in secondary slave
