boot parameters in GRUB

I've installed RH 7.3 on Pentium 200 mmx machine on drive 2 and
I'm using grub to dual boot. I've had mucho problemo with USB and/or Pnp causing kernel panics. My work around right now is to pass noauto and nousb boot parameters booting from a floppy bootdisk which is using SYSLINUX sic. as bootloader , and then also to boot interactively and disable kudzu and autofs.

This seems to work fairly well. My question is does anyone know how to pass these parameters using grub? I've checked the docs on RH website and the GNU Grub site but can't find anything ?

Don't know if this will help, but in my grub menu.lst file I have lines like

kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda5 apm=off acpi=off

i.e., the boot parameters are simply tacked on the end of the line.
