laptop boot AMD64

Hi to everybody!
I am kind of new in this things and I was trying to install Fedora 64 bit on my new laptop, this has amd64 processor.
The question is... when I install fedora and Grub conf is shown, I didn't see the label for the partion of windows xp, I had it previously installed and running but now I cannot access to it...
Does anybody know why grub missed Windows xp partition?
Thanks in advance

Grub/Anaconda (graphical install) does not generally configure the boot devices when configuring grub. Try adding an entry to your /etc/grub.conf file that looks something like this:
title Win2K MainDrive
        root (hd1,0)
        map (hd0) (hd1)
        map (hd1) (hd0)
        chainloader +1
Although change your hd# and partition to the correct numbers (depending on your slave master/partition arrangement)

thanks for the help,
I went into /boot/grub/grub.conf and
added manually the information about the partition and now I can again log in to the windows box.
