ext3 Filesystem & Dual-Booting?

I ONCE had RedHat Linux 9 and Windows XP professional. When I heard that ext3 was supported for RedHat. I redid my system with ext3 because it's faster than ext2. My current setup is this: Master HD is Linux, Slave HD is Windows XP. Windows doesn't touch Linux and vice versa.

GRUB.conf file that booted Windows XP just fine with my setup.

title Windows XP Professional
       map (hd0) (hd1)
       map (hd1) (hd0)
       rootnoveryify (hd1,0)
       chainloader + 1
Does anyone here have the same setup and got windows to boot through grub?

Also: RedHat 9 is dying in April...can I get opinions about some distros people like?

The bit of /boot/grub/menu.lst which boots Windows for me is
title Windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
As for distros, try them all. Send away for cheap CD's and give them all a go. Try or somewhere closer to wherever you live.
