Question Linux & ReactOS (grub configuration)

Here is a problem:
I have next set of partitions:

+--hd1 (primary): vfat
+--hd5 (logic): reiserfs
+--hd6 (logic): reiserfs
+--hd7 (logic): reiserfs
+--hd8 (logic): reiserfs
+--swap (logic): swap

and Debian installed on hd8.
After I set up ReactOS (v0.3.6) into hd1
I edited '/boot/grub/menu.lst' this way:

title Debian GNU/Linux
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-4-686 root=/dev/hda8 ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-4-686

title ReactOS
root (hd0,0)

but couldn't boot into ReactOS. Debian installer
(when detects OSes) doesn't see ReactOS too.
How can I fix this and finally get into ReactOS?
