      You want to add an entry like this to the /boot/grub/menu.lst file:

      title WindowsXP
      root (hd0,0)
      chainloader +1


      (hd0,0) references the hard drive number (0 being the hda) and the partition
      (0 being the first partition) that Windows is installed on.

      Hope that helps!

        Sorry to interrupt... but on _my_ 5150 hd0 is hdc... so to the protocol:

        (hd0,0) is the _first_ partition on the _first_ disk.

        HTH
