I decided to trash the Ubuntu installation on my laptop and install a 
couple of oses multi booting. I was pleasantly surprised that Ubuntu's 
grub picked up most of them except for one. The Xandros will not boot, i 
get a insert correct root=boot option error.

This is in my grub config.

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for an existing
# linux installation on /dev/hda5.
title           Xandros_Desktop_3.0.1_OC (on /dev/hda5)
root            (hd0,4)
kernel          /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 ro rw acpi=on
initrd          /boot/initrd-2.6.9-x1.gz

The /dev/hda5 is correct so i don't know whats wrong.

Anyway i will remember to always install Ubuntu last as it has a 
fantastic way off picking up most multi boot options unlike some others 
i have played with.
