    How to add XP boot entries in menu.lst in Ubuntu

    I am having 2 harddisks one of 40gb with 2 xp installations and the another one of 200gb is having backtrack and ubuntu.

    Once I installed backtrack and ubuntu I lost the boot option to get into XP anymore which is in separate harddisk while both backtrack and ubuntu installations are on another HDD.

    While getting into menu.lst file there is nothing in it to be edited.

    Please help out to get the boot option for 2 installations of XP in the GRUB.

    Newer versions of Ubuntu use a version of grub that doesn't use menu.lst.
