Impossible install suse

Hello everyone. I have a computer with 3 hard drives. 2 for files and 1 HDD for the operating systems. I have installed debian and windows xp.
These days I wanted to install opensuse 11.1 but during the instalatio I received an error from yast2:


An error occurred while installing GRUB
GNU GRUB version 0.97 (640K lower / upper memory 3072)
[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible comands = Completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible Completions of a device / filename.]
grub> setup - stage2 - force-was (hd0) (hd0, 6)

Error 17: Can not mount selected partition
grub> quit

And I have to choose OK or CANCEL
If I choose cancel, the instalation stoped.
If I choose OK the instalations finish but when I restart, I donīt see suse in my grub menu. (I have gurb menu because of the instalation of debian before)
I tried with SUPER GRUB DISK, but no results.

Well this is the problem. I have no idea what to do.
Plese, hope for help.
