GRUB and Other OSes


I recently tried to add another OS to the GRUB list. This is the code. I installed this OS on sda5.

Code:
title OSX86
    root(hd0,5)
    chainloader +1
I dont know if thats right because it doesnt boot into that OS, so could any of you fix it up? The only reason I'm posting this here is because I use SUSE 9.3

Grub starts the hard drive count at zero which means if your OS is on hda5 or sda5, in grub it should be listed as (hd0,4) also if it still does not boot consider putting makeactive before chainloader +1
So here is what everything should look like;

title osx86
root (hd0,4)
chainloader +1

or

title osx86
root (hd0,4)
makeactive
chainloader +1

(of course with the normal indentations for the three lines after title osx86)
