GRUB is in the MBR of the 1st hdd, hd0.
Linux boots OK... and of course I can see GRUB menu perfectly and all the entries (actually 2: Linux and W98). For W98 the entry in grub.conf is:

title Windows 98
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader (hd1)+1

selecting this entry ...

Booting Windows 98
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader (hd1)+1

can't find operating system

...and the machine halts. Three fingers and go BIOS.

(the "can't find operating system" message comes from M$ code)
