If XP is on the first drive (hd0) the swapping is not necessary.

The GRUB command you want is "map" not "swap".  Should be more like

title Windows XP
	map (hd0) (hd1)
	map (hd1) (hd0)
	rootnoverify (hd1)
	chainloader +1

VMware beats the heck out of dual-boot IMHO, as long as what you need
works well under VMware (e.g. no 3D games), your pockets (or employer's)
are deep enough, and performance is acceptable.
