Problem to boot W2K from GRUB


I have problem to boot W2K, here is the details :

I have two hard disk:

on Hard disk_1 (as master), i installed FEDORA 3 (GRUB install on MBR)

on Hard disk_2 (as slave) there is W2K installation.

When i try to boot my W2K i get this message :

rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

and nothing happened

this is my grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.681_FC3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.681_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img

You also need to add this

map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)

to your grub.conf windows section, assuming the windows bootloader is on the second disk with windows.

The windows bootloader needs to think it is on the first disk.
