My grub configuration looks like that

title           Windoz
root            (hd0,3)
chainloader     +1


l# fdisk -l

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda3            1182        5760    36780817+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda4            5761        7296    12337920    7  HPFS/NTFS

As you see my windows system is on my first hard drive on the fourth partition.
Grub starts to count from 0 so that explains the line : root            (hd0,3)

Once you have booted on windows you could also use the windows boot loader if you wish.

I believe grub matters only about which one is the first disc and which is the second.
hd0 would be your Ide, hd1, hd2... your Scsi.
