Power Need to edit the menu.lst so it can work

I am trying to install three OS (Windows VISTA, OpenSUSE 11.3 & Solaris 11 Express) on a single drive of a laptop. However when I go to edit the /rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst to put the entry so it can boot the OpenSUSE 11.3 I get errors some of which result into starting all over again. I have also tried editing the /boot/grub/menu.lst to add the entry for Solaris 11 Express I get errors still. Could someone help me how I can accomplice this! I tried to google for examples but those examples are not helping. Thanks in advance.Smilie
