The script posted was the last abandoned one. Different options were 
tried out but no result. In order to be sure, I tried out the 
root=/dev/hda11 entry again but it stops at kernel panic and gives the 
same 'root=' related error. Do you have any old working scripts for 
pointing grub to lilo?

Can I get into grub prompt in one booted distro and test the grub of 
another distro? Will the testing kernel clash with the one already up in 
the RAM?
