Yes, and I assumed that if Khemera had installed XP on a standalone disk that the jumper settings were ok for being connected to the first IDE slot, as suggested by its being identified as /dev/hda1; it simply occurred to me that something might have got changed along the way and that it would be best to check before we started going down more complicated avenues.

By the way, Khemera, the chainloader +1 line is correct in both instances (in fact for any number of instances where you want GRUB to pass the boot process to another system); you have the addresses ((hd1,0) ...) correctly and that is what is important. Not sure you need the mapping information, though!

Best wishes,
