Grub problem switching Win2K/RedHat7.2


All my PC's are under RH 6.1 so now I installed
an RedHat 6.2 on an PC with a double boot.
File system looks like :
/dev/hda1 * 1 1019 8185086 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2 1020 1274 2048287+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 1275 2549 10241437+ 83 Linux

and grub.conf is like :
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda2
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.7-10.img
title Win2000
rootnoverify (hd0,0)

but unfortunately, when I choose to boot
Win2000, it refuses to start.

What is wrong on my grub.conf file ??

Many TIA

Jean

Try adding after the rootnoverify line this:

makeactive
chainloader +1
