GRUB config is invalid for "Other" OS.

Description of problem:
Anaconda will create invalid GRUB config for "Other" OS and because of it is not
possible to boot into this Other OS. In my case it is Windows XP and it is
placed on /dev/hda1. FC4 itself is on /dev/sda.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4 on system where /dev/hda1 has Windows XP installed and /dev/sda
is for FC4;
2. On system BIOS make the /dev/sda as primary boot device;
3. Install the FC4 to /dev/sda and during GRUB configuration change the device
order (under advance settings) and set the /dev/sda first and /dev/hda as second
map (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
map (hd1,0) (hd0,0)
Unfortunately, the need to do mapping isn't something which can be determined in
an automatic fashion. For the setup of the vast majority of users, the
configuration we set up is the better one to use.
