GRUB doesn't boot to Windows (with Solaris/Windows dual boots)

I have an AMD based workstation with 2 harddisks,
and I have first installed the Windows XP pro on the
first disk, and then installed Solaris 11 on the second
disk.  Looks like the Solaris installer has  detected the
Windows installation and add the Windows info to the
GRUB menu file (see attached, from /boot/grub/menu.lst).

And during the boot, it does show both Solaris and
Windows on the menu, unfortunately if I choose the WIndows
boot from the menu, it comes back immediately to this same menu and
won't boot Windows (although selecting Solaris would boot fine).
I guess Solaris 11 installer uses GRUB as the boot loader and
creates the boot file (/boot/grub/menu.lst)

I have changed the bios  setting to boot the second disk
first (so that the boot always start from GRUB, otherwise, if
first disk is set to boot first, it'd boot to windows directly).

Anyone know what I can change in the
"/boot/grub/menu.lst" file,
so that it can boot to both WIndows and Solaris as
needed? What's the problem here?

Any inputs would be much appreciated.
