I have grub as a boot loader. I have wondoze on one drive and linux w/ grub on the other. If I want to change drives I have to go into the bios and change hdd priority. Alex I should have set this up at the installfest but I didn't. Now I wish that I had. Can I config grub to load up windows even though it is on another hard drive?

I have a program called drak and it gives boot options but it doesn't seem to point correctly to the other hdd. The closet option to my sata drive it gives is dev/sda1 . I believe that I need to set it at dev/sda but unsure.
