You have 2 times the same label name.

Does it give an error message?
Is this a part of a Syslinux config file inside the ISOhybrid image?
Are you booting from an USB stick? If you are, then if your USB stick
is seen like a hard disk, it will be hd0. Your internal disk will then
normally be hd1.

The following syntax is more specific (less guessing for Syslinux):

label localboot
  menu default
  menu label ^1. Boot WinXP/Win98/Win2000
  com32 chain.c32
  append hd1,1
