Dual boot problem - how to add again boot partition


I have problem, I have installed Windows &, Slackware 13.1 and Debian Squeeze on my laptop. Debian is installed last one and grub is responsible for booting them. I entered in Slack and then go to hibernate, after that there is no option at start up menu to enter in Slack, just Debian and Windows, my menu.lst in Debian is empty. What to do ?

This is my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file

Right... If you've got a grub.cfg then you're using grub2, as far as I'm aware, and menu.lst is only used in grub legacy - so I'm surprised you even HAVE a menu.lst file. Is your post suggesting that you could previously boot to all 3, but the option has recently disappeared to boot into Slackware after choosing to hibernate from Slackware? If so, perhaps trying to re-install it might help (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...ing%20GRUB%202). However, I'm quite surprised that Slackware managed to edit Debian's grub.cfg file and update grub; are you sure that grub is definitely installed in Debian rather than in Slackware?

Boot Debian /and run:
update-grub
as root.

In case that won't help have a look here:

It probably is not related. Have a short look.
