Fedora Core 1- Config bootloader?

Well... What my problem is (one of many) is that I have FC on a partition on my drive, and Windows is at the back end. When I set up FC, it runs fine, and then when I switch to windows it runs fine, but once I start to use the other, the other OS won't work until I use a boot disk to get to it. Can anyone help me set up my bootloader to have options for both OSs? I don't care which one it is... And I also have Boot Magic 7.0... But I haven't tried it.

here's an example:


title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img
title Windows 2000
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Take a peek at:

It's worth noting that this example assumes Linux is on hda2 (hd0,1) and Windows is on hda1 (hd0,0). If this is not the case, be sure to alter it to fit your system. Better yet, do as the above poster also suggests and read the howto. The grub info page (run the command: "info grub". Pay particular attention to the "configuration" section) also covers how to set up grub.conf correctly.
