Question Grub: Triple Boot - fedora 9, Mac OS Lep, Vista. Mac boot prob. ?


I have spent more than 15hrs overnight in setting up this 3 OS securely taking precaution of every possible mistake and taking Backups for formatting and Partitioning. Now everything installed and Grub has shown its colour.

When trying to boot the 'MAC OS Leopard' it says unable to mount the file system. The file system of the drive of MAC is hfs+
I formatted the drive from its disc utility in 'Mac OS Extended (Journaled)' file system.

Now with all set up, I can't boot my MAC OS despite such hard work.

More Details:

(hd0, 0) - Windows Recovery Files
(hd0, 1) - Windows vista Files
(hd0, 2) - Fedora 9 Files
(hd0, 4) - Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard Files
Is there any other method of booting Mac OS X using Grub or any other boot loader. I want all three.

I am a Student of IT and like to try out new things. I am familiar with windows and started linux about 6 months ago. Now I want all 3. I cannot delete windows since it came pre installed with my laptop and I want to keep it 4 major application support. I have never used Mac OS X but I want to try.

Are you trying to install Mac OS X on a non-Apple computer?
