    How to add my slackware in suse's grub


    Hello! I have this problem in my grub.... first, i install suse, then slackare. it's a dual boot process. then, in my slackware, i skip installing the lilo to use the grub configuration from suse. after it, i reboot, the slackware is not yet in the list from suse's grub configuration,so i choose suse, then i configure the grub there in suse...i open the menu.lst from /boot/grub/menu.lst then i add these line:

    title Slackware 10.0
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x317 selinux=0 resume=/dev/hda2
    splash=silent showopts
    initrd /boot/initrd


    in which my menu.lst contains all these

    however, when i rebooted it and then choose the slackware, i got these error:

    Filesystem type is reiserfs, partition type 0x83
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x317 selinux=0 resume=/dev/hda2

    Error 15: File not found

    Press any key to continue...

    You have root at hd0,2 and also at /dev/hda2.
    These are different partitions.

    Change root to hd0,2 to hd0,1 or dev/hda2 to /dev/hda3.

    hd0,0 = hda1
    hd0,1 = hda2
    hd0,2 = hda3
