Grub 3rd OS.........FIXED


I am trying to set up mepis in grub as the 3rd OS
I get

root . (hda3)
error 11 : Unrecognized device string
Code:
 
title MEPIS at hda3, kernel 2.6
root     .    (hda3) 
kernel   .    (hd0,3)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda3   nomce psmouse.proto=imps 
splash=verbose vga=791
initrd   .   (hd0,3)/boot/initrd.splash
What do i need to change
Google/linux has not helped much
Thanks

Try
Code:
 
title MEPIS at hda3, kernel 2.6
root     .    (hd0,2) 
kernel   .    (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda3   nomce psmouse.proto=imps 
splash=verbose vga=791
initrd   .   (hd0,2)/boot/initrd.splash
/dev/hda3 is equivalent to hd0,2.

I am still learning GRUB and having problem myself, but I think I happened to know this one.

I think you should replace the root entry (hda3) with (hd0,3) assuming your Mepis is on the third partition of your first harddrive .
