    Maybe you have to check for the partitions.

    I'm sorry, I've forgotten you have to tell grub which
    partition should it use for the /boot directory. Since
    Knoppix does not use any hard drive partitions by
    default, you have to mount your boot partition (or
    your root partition, if you do not have separate /boot)
    somewhere and tell grub to install it's files there.
    I recommend this:
    1) if you have separate boot partition, just mount it
    over Knoppix's /boot and run
    grub-install (hd0)
    2) if you do NOT have separate /boot (ie. you have
    only the root partition (/) and maybe others, but not
    /boot), mount your root somewhere (afaik Knoppix
    have some autodetection and those dirs are placed in
    /mnt, you just have to mount them) and run
    grub-install --root-directory=path/to/mounted/root (hd0)
    That should do the trick.. But better check the
    boot/grub/menu.lst if all your systems are present.
