Try to make this as short as possible..i have been running a dualboot syster with FC3 and XP without any problem. I just purchased a newer system from work so I wanted to move my HDD from the older system to the new one. The new box is a Compaq EVO. Now when I boot I can launch FC3 with no problem , however when I attempt to launch XP I receive a rootnoverify (hd0,0) error. I have looked online and have tried modding the grub.conf to look at dif partions but nothing seems to work. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

I assume that the EVO is a desktop system, not a notebook?

Is the drive that you put into the new system the only one in the system, or did you add it to an existing drive already in the system? If the latter, how is it jumpered (IDE drive)?

Also, you realize that is the hardware in the new system is significantly different than on the machine that you originally installed XP on, then you could run into some problems with XP?
