Yeah, grub never uses sd* names, always hd* and always in the order 
presented 
by BIOS (as opposed to Linux, which presents them as they are discovered 
through device probing with names dependent on the module/subsystem).

You can probably use grub TAB-completion to determine the correct (hd*) 
setting.  Generally, your boot partition will have a vmlinux or vmlinuz 
file 
on it. So, the workflow would go something like:

GRUB> (hd<TAB>
0 1
GRUB> (hd0,<TAB>
0 1 2 3
GRUB> (hd0,0)/vm<TAB>
GRUB> (hd0,1)/vm<TAB>
GRUB> (hd0,2)/vm<TAB>
vmlinuz vmlinuz.old vmlinuz-gentoo-2.6.19-r2 vmlinuz-gentoo-2.6.18-r6

At this point you know your /boot partition is (hd0,2) in grub-speak.

If don't have a dedicated /boot partition, and instead it's part of the / 
filesystem you'll want to look for boot/vmlinux or boot/vmlinuz instead.  
This may work even if you have a /boot parition, since some 
ditros/administrator put a symbolic link "boot" to "." in /boot when it's 
on 
a partition by itself.
