|If you have installed DOS (or Windows) on a non-first hard disk, you have to use the disk swapping technique, because that OS cannot boot from any disks but the first one. The workaround used in GRUB is the command map (see map), like this:
grub> map (hd0) (hd1)
grub> map (hd1) (hd0)
This performs a virtual swap between your first and second hard drive.
So.... Here's the reworked Win2K section of my menu.lst:
title=Windows 2000 Pro
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
