assuming you ntfs partition is the second partiton on the first drive. If you run the command "fdisk -l", check to see if it is marked active (*) If not, insert "makeactive" between rootnoverify (hd0,1) and chainloader +1
In a previous post, you were asked to post the output of 'fdisk -l' and you posted information on drive sda. So if you ran than command, then you have one drive? In your last post you indicate you get a message 'Cannot open /dev/sda', yet you have previously posted info from sda? How many drives do you have? If you have more than one, are they connected?
I'm having the same problem but, what i saw at your menu.list was that you have put the xp boot"command" at the other Linux boots, because Xp isn't a Linux distribution it doesn't belongs there you need to put it at the end of the text
### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
if it still isn't booting you need to use a [TAB] after title and root
hope it works!
