SuSE 9.2, Xandros and WinXP

Hey Group;

A Linux friend has a 3 partition WinXP=hda1, /boot=hda2, Xandros=hda5 and SuSE 9.2=hda6. Each hda5 and hda6 are 30Gigs with /boot about 500 meg. (plus a swap=hda3 and /hda7 is spare)

The problem is I have tried about every combination of hd#,# and can not get Xandros to boot with grub from SuSE9.2

Windows and SuSE9.2 boot just fine. However, Xandros which has its /boot on /dev/hda5 fails to boot.

Has anyone seen a similar problem?

menu.lst is on SuSE9.2=hda6/boot/grub.
