I use Acronis for loading most of my machines but I can give you an example
that is close:

The below is my hand-edited menu.lst for grub on one machine. I don't use
Yast for menu configuration.

I have added comments that start with +++ on a line

Note that every entry points to drives, partitions, and filenames. And it's
basically that simple. A little perusal should show you what is going on.
The only 'funny' think about it is that partition numbers and hard drive
numbers start with zero and count up.

Simple............
