instructions + output:
grub> root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-486 ro single root=UUID=c3c4116a-9925-4664-8823-2b0697563784
    [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x3000, size=0x1637f0]
grub> initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-2-486
    [Linux-initrd @ 0x1d9fc000, 0x5e37bb bytes]
grub> boot
Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok

Unless something has changed and Debian now uses grub2 instead of grub (legacy 0.9x) you're doing it wrong.

Grub legacy addresses devices by dropping the partition identifier entirely. (hd0) Partitions within the device start numbering at zero, thus sda1 is (hd0,0).
