Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't know a whole hell of a lot with the short-and-curlies of Grub's syntax and commands, but try running "dpkg-reconfigure grub" as root to see if it will automatically probe your HD for any bootable kernels.
If this works as I hope it will, it will automatically update your menu.lst file for you with the proper boot-entry syntax for Solaris
Is that a recent version of Solaris? Until recently, Solaris didn't support AHCI and I've seen quite a few occasions where it either failed to install or to boot up. I'm using the Community Express Edition, which tends to have better hardware support as it is something of a beta for the official Solaris.
By the way, I seem to remember one case where the real problem was the ordering of chainloader and makeactive. They had to be in that exact order or it wouldn't work.
