    GRUB wont boot into windows, just hangs


    Hey
    running Fedora Core 1!
    anywho
    this is how i have my grub.conf file setup
    Code:
    #boot=dev/hda
    default=0
    timeout=10
    asplashimage=(hd2,5)/boot/grub/asplash.xpm.gz
    title Fedora Core
    	root (hd2,5)
    	kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb
    	initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
    title Windows XP
    	rootnoverify (hd2,2)
    	chainloader +1
    I can't boot into either Fedora or XP
    I have to use my trusty old boot disk.
    I think the problem is is that Im not labeling my Hard drives right, maybe some1 can tell me what these translate into in GRUB
    Fedora Drive: /dev/hdd6
    Windows Drive: /dev/hdb1

    Thanks
