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).

DAMN Sorry!!!!!!!!
It's exactly the OTHER WAY ROUND!!

AFTER virtually exchanging the drives via the map command,
grup STILL thinkso  (hd1,0) as the SECOND drive!!!!!!!
The virtual exchannging of drives DOES NOT affect the internal drive numbering 
of grub.!!!!!!!!!!

Very bewildering topic.
