booting windows xp instead of the linux causes a blue screen

this is my grub.conf file

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this
file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#          root (hd0,2)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda3
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-18.9)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-18.9 ro root=LABEL=/
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-18.9.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img

title "WinblozeXPEE"
        rootnoverify (hd0,1)
        chainloader +1

my drive looks like this

[linuxswap %%% windows partition %%% linux]
booting in linux works fine, obviously, but when i select windows, it
definitely doesnt.

any ideas why that conf file  causes a blue screen (besides windows
sucking)?

TIA

Kinda like asking why a pinto blows up when hit except for the gas tank.

This looks useful however:

thanks, but i guess its a little late for that, because ive alrady
installed both windows XP (which also wasnt on that list) and linux
i might be able to do it by using a partition magic boot disk and
hiding the linux partition then unhiding the windows...lets find out

 change
title "WinblozeXPEE"
         rootnoverify (hd0,1)
         chainloader +1
in
title "WinblozeXPEE"
         root (hd0,1)
        chainloader +1

luck and let us know if it worked

FYI
The windows bootloader works like the 2000 boot loader, so those
instructions should still work.

1. Dual boot XP / Linux wont boot into XP

I bought a computer with XP on it.
I installed Redhat 7.2 with grub loader.
Grub menu shows two selections, Windows xp & Linux.
If I select Windows xp, nothing happens, the menu
pops up again.
Linux boots fine.

I've searched google for this, and everything I've found
says to do everything I've done already, but XP still
won't boot.

Heres grub.conf:

default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.7-10)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.7-10 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.7-10.img

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

Any help at all appreciated.
