SATA confusion

    I was able to install WindowsXT on a SATA drive. This Ubuntu is on 
the other IDE drive. To get windows to load I had to disable the IDE 
drive. When windows was loaded I could not get to Grub. So I unplugged 
power to the SATA drive and again Grub worked as expected.

    Today I wanted to dual boot with windows. So I plugged in the SATA 
drive and with the Ubuntu live cd in operation I looked with fdisk and I 
had a /dev/hda which is the IDE and /dev/sba which is the SATA drive.

    I put the grub setup on (hd0) and so with both drives working grub 
works. But for some reason I cannot get windows to boot. I am afraid 
there is no (hd??) that fits the SATA /dev/sda1 which is where it is.

    Any ideas?
