Adding XP to multi boot

Microsoft Windows xp home edition sp2b

Specs: Windows XP
I have a Linux/Win2000 dual boot and want to add XP. I installed XP onto a separate hard drive via OEM restore disk with an image, there are no actual install disks. It forces me to install to the first drive. I do this, XP boots OK. When I change this to the second drive, XP won't boot. I've added the XP partition to the Win2000 boot.ini list. The original XP boot.ini file was:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP " /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

I changed entry rdisk(1) and updated on the XP second disk and to the Win2000 boot menu.

It doesn't boot. Anyone have any ideas?

Since it appears you have installed on the second disk
and it seems you are sayinh it's the only OS on there
try:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(0)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP " /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn
