For booting Windows from another drive than hd0, you probably need to
add the 'swap'

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

You can also include HDT and see there how your BIOS sees your
internal hard drive,
and on which partition your Windows install is.

label hdt
  menu label ^2. Hardware Detection Tool
  com32 hdt.c32
