Partition hiding w/ 2 Windows installs on 2 disks

The example grub.conf containts hide/unhide entries, however, when booting
into Windows 2000, i can still see Windows XP partition as drive F:.

The box has 2 scsi disks, and the 2nd one is now hd0, that's where XP is
installed. Windows 2000 is on

Has this feature been tested when using multiple disks, or does it perhaps
work only when hiding a partition on the same disk? I assume hiding is
accomplished by changing partition type to something Windows doesn't
recognize. However, after booting into 2000, and then into Linux, i see
that XP partition's type is 17, Hidden HPFS/NTFS.

I know that documentation says this should work, but trying to make
sure if this is known to work across disks.
