If winxp is on your secondary HD is the 1st controler slave 1st partition then it would be

biggrin.gif for booting if u have menu of OS there then just press enter and u can boot with that OS...

but i think u have asked about configuring GRUB...if u have installed RHDL 7.3 already and want to proceed with windows installation...then don't forget to make a boot disk...and u can edit grub.conf file for changing the boot settings...but still i will suggest u install xp on primary and linux on slave...
