triple booting windows, ubuntu and osx86: passing boot options from grub to osx86?

As the title says, I'm triple booting at the moment but in order to load OSX86, I need to pass "cpus=1" to the kernel otherwise it won't load and the PC just reboots.

So my question is: Can I pass this argument from grub or do I have to install osx to a seperate hdd and get grub to load the Darwin bootloader on the second hdd and then pass the argument?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if this would do the trick, but try putting a "pause msg" command in /boot/grub/menu.lst. More info at "info grub".
