Trouble booting ROS

My computer is setup with Suse Linux 9.2 and Windows XP on the master hard drive. Grub is the bootloader. I installed ROS on an extra 6GB hard drive I had (slaved on sam IDE channel) and cannot get it to boot. I've added the following entry to GRUB.

title ReactOS
root (hd1,0)
kernel /freeldr.sys

When I try to boot from the entry I get this:

Multiboot-kludge, loadaddr=0x200000, text-and-data=0x1f000, bss=0x1dbd0, entry=0x20033c
press any key to reboot

Any help is greatly appreciated.

That last line should read chainloader +1 instead of kernel /freeldr.sys

I've tried chainloader +1 and got less than I did with kernel freeldr. Also if you take a look at the wiki, passing freeldr.sys as the kernel is the specified way to load freeldr via GRUB. Either way I got it fixed by moving the hard drive to be the primary hard drive all by itself in another PC and redoing the whole install. Now it boots fine.
