Not up on GAG, (and I thought GRUB was a funky name ;^) but if you
install grub on the FC2T3 /boot partition, rather than the primary
drive's MBR, you SHOULD be able to get GAG to chain to it.  If you
didn't do that at install time, will need to boot from the FC2T3 CD#1 in
rescue mode and do the job.  A search of the list archives will provide
everything you need to know.  May want to pay particular attention to
some of the threads that you are likely to turn up on problems with
FC2test/XP dual boot systems, although your hardware configuration seems
likely to be immune from them.
