I hope not. Where did you install GRUB? In the MBR (of /dev/hda) or in the
boot sector of /dev/hda1? Does your /boot/grub/grub.conf have the right
settings to match that? Here's an example from mine, which has all Linux
systems on the second disk (I use BootMagic to get me to /dev/hdb2; sorry
about the wrap - the kernel line is all one):
title Gentoo XFCE
kernel (hd1,1)/kernel-2.6.14-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/hdb7
video=vesafb:ywrap vga=0x31A splash=native console=tty1 /dev/hdd=ide-cd
Here you can see that /dev/hdb2 is my boot partition, 100MB like yours,
where the kernel file is stored, and that my Xfce root partition is
/dev/hdb7, a logical partition (inside /dev/hda4 though that doesn't matter).
