HELP: Bootloader


Okay here is the deal. I have 3 hard drives and 1 DVD-RW.

HDA1 - Ubuntu Install
HDA2 - Swap
HDA3 - Home
--
HDB1 - Windows XP (NTFS)
HDB2 - Documents (NTFS)
--
HDD1 - Media (NTFS)
HDD5 - Old Mandrake HD

When I installed Ubuntu I selected that I DID want GRUB. But it didnt add my XP install to the list. (gee thanks) So I have been looking all over the internet, for a couple hours now, asking people etc etc. Cant find much info. Here is what I have:

I went into term and did sudo pico menu.list typed in my password and here I am. Stuck here. I dont know what to enter. Any help is greatly appriciated.

Add the following at the end of the lst.
Code:
title Windows
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
Searching on "mbr and map" should give you some posts to explain why the map commands are required.
