I experienced the subject of this email with 2 disks (hd0=XP+Fedora, 
hd1=Ubuntu). Unfortunately it did not completely worked as XP is now broken. 
Precisely XP start (XP logo appears very briefly) but crashes (the famous 
Windows blue screen...).  
Boot loader is grub and order of installations were :XP+Fedora (=OK), +Ubuntu 
(=Not OK for XP).
(Note: please see hereafter my grub.conf)

Has anyone an idea about this ?
Maybe I need to re-install XP (but is it possible without erasing Fedora or 
Ubuntu on respectiv choosen disk for XP) and after reinstalling grub from a 
boot in rescue mode ?

File grub.conf:

(...)
default=1
timeout=10

title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.27_FC3)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.27_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.27_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.27_FC3smp)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.27_FC3smp ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.27_FC3smp.img

title           Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-386
root            (hd1,0)
kernel          /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386 root=/dev/sdb1 ro quiet splash
initrd          /boot/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386
savedefault
boot

title Windows XP
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        makeactive
        chainloader +1
(...)

Thanks for any clue or opinion,
Bruno
