    That probably means swapped drive numbers. I'm hearing strange rumors that windows can't boot from anything but the first BIOS disk. Fortunately, GRUB has the answer to this; try this:
    Code:
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1
    boot
    If you enter it into your grub.conf, you don't need the "boot" command.

    I'm not sure just off-hand, so if it doesn't work, see "info grub". I think you "dd bs=512 count=1 </usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage1 >/dev/fd0" and "dd bs=512 seek=1 </usr/share/grub/i386-pc/stage2 >/dev/fd0". But like I said, I'm not completely sure.
