Summary:  Can not boot Windows XP from grub

Original Submission:  OS : Fedora Core 2
Disk layout :

1 old 12 GB disk (IBM DJNA-371350) dedicated to Windows on on-board PATA 

2 newer 80 GB disks (Maxtor 6Y080L0) on PCI PATA controler (SII680) in Linux 
software raid 1 configuration. Fedora Core 2. Grub installed on the first drive 

When I tell the bios to boot from the SII680 card Grub and Linux are loaded 
without problem. When I tell it to boot from the first hard drive windows 
boots. When I tell grub to chainload boot on the windows partition nothing 

Grub entry :

title Ouine
        map (hd0) (hd2)
        rootnoverify (hd2,0)
        chainloader +1

Warning: Unable to align partition properly.  This probably means that another 
partitioning tool generated an incorrect
partition table, because it didn't have the correct BIOS geometry.  It is safe 
to ignore,but ignoring may cause (fixable)
problems with some boot loaders.

fdisk says :

address@hidden nim]#  /sbin/fdisk /dev/hde
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 1650.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
