GRUB does not load Windows XP

I am having trouble getting GRUB to load Windows XP 

I get the following display:

root (hd1,0)
Filesystem type unkown
Parition typ 0x7
chainloader + 1

then everything just freezes and I have to reboot.

(I had problems to get grub working when I installed ubuntu. For some reason 
grub would not be written to the MBR of my Windows drive, so I changed the 
bios setting to boot from the drive on which I wanted to install Ubuntu. I 
installed ubuntu. It installed GRUB and detected my windows system, but this 
is now where the above problem comes in.)

Any help?
