Adding Zenwalk to Grub


Hi! I installed Zenwalk on a harddisk where I had already Windows XP and Ubuntu. I refused the installation of Lilo and I just want to add Zenwalk to Grub, but I did not manage to do that right. Can you tell me what entry do I have to add to Grub to make Zenwalk boot? Please help!
Here are a copy of my Grub like it is right now.

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-16-generic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-16-generic root=UUID=d2521c37-5581-4528-8c9a-85e6fdb47ec7 ro quiet splash locale=ro_RO acpi=force irqpoll
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-16-generic
quiet
savedefault

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-16-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-16-generic root=UUID=d2521c37-5581-4528-8c9a-85e6fdb47ec7 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-16-generic

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-15-generic
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic root=UUID=d2521c37-5581-4528-8c9a-85e6fdb47ec7 ro quiet splash locale=ro_RO acpi=force irqpoll
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-15-generic
quiet
savedefault

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-15-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-15-generic root=UUID=d2521c37-5581-4528-8c9a-85e6fdb47ec7 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-15-generic

title Ubuntu, memtest86+
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/memtest86+.bin
quiet

### END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST

# This is a divider, added to separate the menu items below from the Debian
# ones.
title Other operating systems:
root


# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux OS
# on /dev/sda1
title Microsoft Windows XP źdition familiale
root (hd0,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1[/COLOR]


My disk structure is:

/dev/sda1 WindowsXP
/dev/sda4 Zenwalk
/dev/sda2 Ubuntu
/dev/sda3 extended
/dev/sda5 linux-swap

Many thanks!

Add something like
Code:
title Zenwalk
 root (hd0,3)
 kernel /boot/(zenwalk kernel) ro single
 initrd /boot/(zenwalk initrd)
Basically, you're just gonna change the paths to the kernel and initrd, and the root device.
