Description of problem:
Installed Fedora Core Test 2. Can happily boot into Fedora, but I am
now unable to boot into windows XP

Section taken from grub.conf

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

When this option is selected, grub starts and Fedora boots fine but
trying to boot Win XP, the following prints to the screen:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)

(blinking cursor)

I have tried using the windows XP recover console, and runing fixboot
and fixmbr, but even after runing these I'm still unable to run
windows. After running these I reinstall grub using recovery mode from
the fedora disks, which lets me boot Fedora again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have windows XP installed
2. Insatll Fedora Test 2, (leaving all options as default)
3. Try booting from Windows XP

Actual Results:  Fedora boots fine but trying to boot Win XP, the
following prints to the screen:

rootnoverify (hd0,0)

(blinking cursor)

Expected Results:  Windows Xp should start

I'm thinking this is a duplicate of Bug# 115980.  This still hasn't 
been resolved (to my knowledge).

This just happened to me with Fedora Core 2 Test 3!  It's not fixed.

Make your default boot loader NTLDR
Make the linux.bin
-- one-line command--
dd if=/dev/{bootpartition} of=/mnt/windows_root_c/Linux.bin bs=512 count=1

--- command end ----

edit C:\boot.ini and add line:
C:\Linux.bin="Fedora Core 2"

set active boot partition to win partition
