What file is missing? Where in the boot sequence does the error occur?

This pc has 2 hard drives SUSE and windows on one and Ubuntu on the other. When I boot the pc I get the choice of which os. When I choose Suse Linux 9.1 (i586) (on /dev/hda3) I get the following
Booting Suse Linux 9.1 (i586) (on /dev/hda3)

root (hda0,2)
File system type reiserfs, partition type 0x83
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.5-7.151-default root=/dev/hda3
Error 15 file not found
press ant key to continue


bootloader is grub

"root (hda0,2)"

That should be:

root (hd0,2)

Problem solved probably the hard way I backed up the stuff I wanted in Ubuntu and then reinstalled it. Ubuntu recognised the other operating systems and sorted out grub during the install. I will now backup all those things I thought I might have lost.
