Custom grub config hangs at the prompt


Please I need help with this custom grub:

Code:
default=0
timeout=20
fallback=1

title Remote Install
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz_remote lang=en_US keymap=us ks=nfs:192.168.128.42:/tftpboot/Kickstart/ks.cfg ksdevice=00:1A:64:22:32:4B headless xfs panic=60
initrd /initrd_remote.img
I have 3 grub configs and I've been able to make the "Remote install" grub config to be the default run. At the moment it boots up but hangs at the prompt.

Grub version: 0.98

The other 2 grubs that exists after successful installation and update of the kernel are:

Code:
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title CentOS (2.6.32-279.9.1.el6.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.32-279.9.1.el6.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_serverprisa-lv_root rd_NO_LUKS LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rd_LVM_LV=vg_serverprisa/lv_swap rd_NO_MD rd_LVM_LV=vg_serverprisa/lv_root SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 crashkernel=auto  KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rd_NO_DM rhgb quiet
        initrd /initramfs-2.6.32-279.9.1.el6.x86_64.img
title CentOS (2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_serverprisa-lv_root rd_NO_LUKS LANG=en_US.UTF-8 rd_LVM_LV=vg_serverprisa/lv_swap rd_NO_MD rd_LVM_LV=vg_serverprisa/lv_root SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 crashkernel=auto  KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rd_NO_DM rhgb quiet
        initrd /initramfs-2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64.img
Some symptoms:

If I change the 'Remote Install' entry to non-default and I manually select it at the grub menu, It works. It fails when I want it to be the default.

Any ideas of how to resolve this is greatly appreciated.
