rhel4 and fc5 dual boot

i already have rhel4 on my computer and some free space there. it was working fine. then on free space i succesfully installed FC5, but that installation overwrites rhel boot loader. now i want to add rhel boot entry on FC5 grub.
i have /sda1 as /boot
/sda2 as /var
/sda3 as /
/sda5 as swap
and sda6 have FC5
now what parameter i should pass to kernel so that it will boot
i used root=/ then root=/dev/sda1 to sda3 but getting kernel panic

Try the following,
title RHEL
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda3 rhgb
initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd.img
Change the kernel and initrd versions so that they match those on your system.
