Summary:  addition to the FAQ (Booting WinXP)

Original Submission:  please add to 

--- original text
Use the command map, to exchange BIOS drives virtually, like this:
grub> map (hd0) (hd1)
grub> map (hd1) (hd0)
---- !!!NEWLY ADDED TEXT !!!!!!!!
grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)

Explanation: WinXP can _ONLY_ be booted from the FIRST disk. After you 
virtually exchanged the BIOS drives, grub itself also thinks the drives are 
exchanged. In the above example this would meen: Windows physically is 
installed on the primary partition of the _SECOND_ harddisc. But AFTER 
virtually exchanging the drives you adress the WinXP Partition as (hd0,0).
