thanks for email but I prefer to be transparent and do not reply to emails via email.
Answer....read the tut....my aussie speak for tutorial in my signature.....scroll down to
Know your /etc/fstab and the section on
which tells you if /boot .....it is either a separate partition or a subfolder to / in which case it is the same partition as /
/dev/hda1 = /boot
/dev/hda2 = / and all other folders
grubspeak root will mean (hd0,0)
/dev/sda3 = / (/boot is subfolder) means grubspeak is
then you know what to make the root command
root (hdX,y) becomes in eg1 (hd0,0) or eg2 (hd0,2)
if not just read the tutorial again.
it is a common misunderstanding for beginners which is why I put it in the tutorial.
if you still are at a loss pls post your /etc/fstab file
