dual booting windows (on ata drive) and debian (on sata)
i need some help; i have one ata drive (windows xp) and one sata drive (debian).. i have ntldr on mbr and grub on sata drive.. i can not dual boot by just copying first 512 bytes of sata drive and referencing it in boot.ini. When I try to choose linux on ntldr screen, I get a frozen "GRUB".
In linux, hda is the ata drive and hde is the sata drive. In windows, sata drive is recognized as the first hard drive and then the ata drive. I could go to linux through booting directly using sata harddrive and no ata hard drive.
Can some one please help me with this?

Have you tried adding windows to GRUB. Windows ntldr does not recognize anything besides Windows OSes. But Grub is very versatile.How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
