need light on GRUB?

Recently i addaed red-hat on my system. previoudly i had win2k dual booting with suse9, Now when i wanted to make triple boot with red hat, suse hide automatically.

Previously i use to see suse bootup screen, now i see red hat with choice to boot windows and red hat.

Can anyone tell me how to configure grub to show all?

you can copy the redhat entries in /boot/grub/grub.conf

note down the kernel name, initrd filename, root drive of the suse distro and just replace them on the copied redhat entries.

For example
title Win
 rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1
title Fedora Core (2.6.8-1.521)
        root (hd0,6)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.521 ro root=/dev/hda7 rhgb quiet vga=788
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.8-1.521.img
# copied from above
title SuSE 9.1
        root (hd1,7)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hdb7 vga=788
        initrd /boot/initrd.gz
