Default LILO: Need help adding SATA based Win XP Drive

i have slackware 11 installed on an IDE drive and windows xp installed on a SATA drive. i have LILO installed to the MBR on the IDE drive.

i want to add win xp to my lilo menu. i can mount the win xp device in linux, and i know that it is /dev/sda1. if i want to boot the win xp drive, would the following be acceptable?

Code:
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/sda1
label = Windows-XP-Pro
# map-drive = 0x80
# to = 0x81
# map-drive = 0x81
# to = 0x80
table = /dev/sda
# Windows bootable partition config ends
or would i need...

Code:
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/sda1
label = Windows-XP-Pro
map-drive = 0x80
to = 0x81
map-drive = 0x81
to = 0x80
table = /dev/sda
# Windows bootable partition config ends
if someone could shed some light on what exactly the 0x80 and 0x81 mean, that would be great
