need grub menu.lst example

I want to install 10.1 as a 3rd OS with XP and FC3. I don't want to to lose my present grub setup so I want to install 10.1 without the boot loader and manually modify my menu.lst. Can someone post an example of the of grub entry for the stock 10.1 kernel with a single Hard disk?
Thank you.

Each distribution is different in the way they want the menu.lst setup. I have been trying the mandrake site but so far can't find the info there. If I have to I will eventually get something to work but I was just hoping that some kind soul would save me a lot of time by justing posting their /boot/grub/menu.lst.

I wouldn't worry. I suggest you print your current grub conf and then install Mandrake.
Mandrake shouldn't have any problems setting up the grub configuration for a triple boot.

Just as long as one Linux distro boots correctly, you can always recover without any difficulties.
