Problem With Booting XP using GRUB

I thought it would be fun to install Fedora on a separate hard drive and keep windows xp on the master drive. However, when i choose to boot to XP from grub, it takes me to the system recovery partition of my primary hard drive. I was careful not to reformat anything on the master drive and the only thing i installed there was grub. During the installation I got a warning that there was a problem reading the partition on hda and it might cause problems when booting but they are fixable. I really don't know what to do. I'd rather not perform a destructive recovery. Thanks!
