I will try with something similar to this:

title Windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader (hd0,0)/ntldr

supposing that the ntldr is called like that.

A) Tell me if that works for you I'm interested also in loading ntldr 

The response to your question is in the manual:

Load file as a chain-loader.

file can be (hd0,0)+1 as usual or it can be a file as in a linux system. 
And now that I am reading the documentation you might need probably the --
force option.

title Windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader --force (hd0,0)/ntldr

A) I repeat again, tell me how does it work for you.

Another ntldr must be in a partition that Grub can read... that's FAT32 
mainly,... if you want to use ntldr in NTFS you might need a Grub called 
Grub Win32 or similar with ntfs support. Check these links:

http://www.geocities.com/lode_leroy/grubinstall/ (This is the useful one)
http://grub4dos.sourceforge.net/ (This is just for curiosity)

B) Another question. Why are you interested in loading ntldr manually?

See you,
