thats the way grub does it
root (hd0,4) means /dev/hda5 so it one number less then the partition where you have your distro installed. read the grub docs in /usr/docs/grub or /usr/share/docs/grub
hd0 is /dev/hda so if your distro is installed on hda on the first partition it would be root (hd0,0)
grub just starts counting at zero instead of 1
