If I understand your question, you just have to add a stanza in the
menu.lst of the boot partition on /dev/sda1 pointing to the boot
partition of the new install.  Well, you did install the boot
information on a boot partition on the new drive I assume (the
installer asks you if you want to do that instead of overwriting the
MBR).

Here is the stanza I use, but I have seen other people on the list say
they use chainloader +1.

title Fedora 11 sata 1 boot 1 
  root (hd2,0) 
  configfile /grub/menu.lst

If you don't have a separate boot partition, the second line has to be
configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
