Default XP won't boot

next trouble, installing grub...

I have a dualboot machine, fresh install:

Code:
[pba@archangel /usr/home/pba]$ fdisk
******* Working on device /dev/ad0 *******
parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are:
cylinders=581290 heads=16 sectors/track=63 (1008 blks/cyl)

Figures below won't work with BIOS for partitions not in cyl 1
parameters to be used for BIOS calculations are:
cylinders=581290 heads=16 sectors/track=63 (1008 blks/cyl)

Media sector size is 512
Warning: BIOS sector numbering starts with sector 1
Information from DOS bootblock is:
The data for partition 1 is:
sysid 165 (0xa5),(FreeBSD/NetBSD/386BSD)
    start 63, size 102397617 (49998 Meg), flag 80 (active)
        beg: cyl 0/ head 1/ sector 1;
        end: cyl 1023/ head 244/ sector 63
The data for partition 2 is:
sysid 7 (0x07),(OS/2 HPFS, NTFS, QNX-2 (16 bit) or Advanced UNIX)
    start 102398310, size 102398310 (49999 Meg), flag 0
        beg: cyl 1023/ head 255/ sector 63;
        end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63
The data for partition 3 is:
sysid 7 (0x07),(OS/2 HPFS, NTFS, QNX-2 (16 bit) or Advanced UNIX)
    start 204796620, size 381142125 (186104 Meg), flag 0
        beg: cyl 1023/ head 255/ sector 63;
        end: cyl 1023/ head 254/ sector 63
The data for partition 4 is:
<UNUSED>
First partition is Free/PC-BSD, second the XP installation, third an NTFS data-disk.

My grub menu looks like this:

Code:
[pba@archangel /usr/home/pba]$ cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
title FreeBSD
root(hd0,0,a)
kernel /boot/loader

title WindowsXP
rootnoverify(hd0,1)
makeactive
chainloader +1
boot
This should be correct, right? I also swapped partitions back and forth, but no success.

When I choose WindowsXP in the menu, it pauses for half a second, then starts the bsd bootloader
