grub - problems with multi-boot with w2k

Hello

I`ve got a problem with configuring grub.
My hard disks are:

Primary Master: (3 partitions)
  partition 0: linux - grub installed
  partition 1: ... doesn`t matter
  partition 2: ... fat32 - old windows 2000
Primary Slave: (1 partition)
  partition 0: ntfs - new windows 2000

Secondary Master: (1 partition)
  partition 0: ntfs - stuff

Secondary Slave: cd

When I start (setting up previously booting from Primary Slave) New Windows 2000 everything is ok, Windows starts up. But I wanted to start everything from disk Primary Master and I configured grub in a way that
1) linux starts with no problems,
2) old windows I have written sth like this in grub.conf:

>          rootnoverify (hd0,2)
>          chainloader +1

and this windows starts with no problems
3) new windows is sth what makes me crazy:
I`ve tried:

>          rootnoverify (hdXX,YY)
>          chainloader +1

where XX=1,2,3 and YY=0,1,2,3,4 (I know that some of these values are completly stupid). As for me it should work with such options:

>          rootnoverify (hd1,0)
>          chainloader +1

but it doesn`t.

thanks for help to anyone.

You probably need to virtually swap the two drives, so that you second Win2000 installation thinks it's on the first disk. You can do this with the following command:

map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)

So your second Win2000 section in menu.lst should look like this:

title Win2000New
   map (hd0) (hd1)
   map (hd1) (hd0)
   rootnoverify (hd1,0)
   chainloader +1
