    Earlier a guy said this:

If you installed your mandriva bootloader on the MBR of sdb that
points to a /boot partition on sdb#, you can just add a stanza in your
Fedora 7 grub.conf on sda to chainload sdb ... just treat your other
grub like you would a Windows partition (without all the crazy BIOS
drive order swapping and partition hiding needed).

    The chainload is what grub does for any Windows partitions. I'm not 
sure you want to try chainload sdb. But that might just be it. Look at 
man grub and get the details for a windows loader.
