Something on the order of:

Title winXP
    root (hd0)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1

If the XP drive is the first drive, skip the map commands. They are
there so that the BIOS mapping of the XP drive matches the matches
the mapping from when XP was installed. This setup expects that the
MBR of the XP drive is still intact. If not, change the root to the
XP partition.
