Sorry for replying to my own but I had a tinker with the grub.conf from
FC2 (hdb).

It used to be...

title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img
title FC1
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1

Then I added between the two titles...

title Fedora Core 1 (2.4.22-1.2188.nptl)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl.img

And that lets me boot into FC1 on hda now :)

But I just wondered if I'd got the kernel line right, for 'Fedora Core
1', should I have copied the LABEL exactly including the "1" ?

After booting back into FC1 on hda I checked the grub.conf and the line
was ...

	kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb 

Should I add in "hdc=ide-scsi" to the grub.conf I'm now using from hdb?
I presume that's the CDROM?
