Start by posting the contents of /boot/grub/menu.lst
I suspect the issue is there.

The Windows section should look something like this:

title           Windows XP Media Center Edition
root            (hd0,1)
chainloader     +1

The "root" part will depend on the drive and partition your 
Windows install is located. Above Windows is installed on 
the first drive second partition.

Maybe below may help some, though not totally related to your question:

and by the rulers as useful. --- Lucius Annaeus Seneca
