grub dual boot between scsi and ide SOLVED


I'm having issues dual booting between Mandriva, and Redhat. I'm using grub on the RH 3.0 scsi disk (sda1). The Mandriva disk is ide (hda1).

My menu.lst file is:
Code:
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Mandriva
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda5 splash=silent
        initrd /boot/initrd.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp.img
RH boots fine, but Mandrive gets to loading the initrd.img and says that it cannot find it. Any ideas?

solution found:

Code:
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Mandriva
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz acpi=ht root=/dev/hda1 resume=/dev/hda5 splash=silent
        initrd /boot/initrd.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.21-32.0.1.ELsmp.img
Thanks,
Pete

Also seems kinda silly for grub to be calling all drives hd. I prefer lilo in this case.
