	If Windows 2000 is on /dev/hdg1, then you'd want something like
(hd1,0).  I'd try that.  Or you could even try booting off (hd1) since
the Microsoft MBR should still be kicking around on that drive.

	Windows may freak out that it doesn't have a page file or other
nastiness like that if it was expecting to be in (hd0).  Good luck.
