New drive added, help with GRUB

I have a Promise TX2000 that dual boots between XP and Redhat 9. I added a new hard drive to my motherboard controller. I want to install and run fedora off it. My thoughts are that my system will continue to boot off my tx2000 and that the grub will point to the newly install fedora. Then I would have 3 choice, xp, rh9 and fedora. I dont know how to make the fedora grub entry.

Please help or point me in the right direction.

Current grub.

title Windows XP SP1
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title Red Hat Linux 9 (2.4.20-8)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ ide0=0x1f0,0x3f6,14 ide1=0x170,0x376,15 ide2=0 ide3=0 ide4=0 ide5=0 ide6=0 ide7=0 ide8=0 ide9=0
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img

The entry may be something like that:
title Fedora
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb1
