I don't see any syntax errors, maybe you do?
I added the first two of these for testing:-

menuentry 'Mandriva 2010.1 x86-64 root' {
search --no-floppy --label --set 2010_1_64_root
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=LABEL=2010_1_64_root ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img

Gee, Barry, that is really strange. Even if entry doesn't boot, that entry should appear in the menu. Syntax looks okay from here and make sure there is no space before "}". (or after) and save with cursor without space before it (just in case). I remember a script that is fussy about such things. - I think it is ".bashrc" never had syntax errors with grub menu.lst or grub.cfg

Or you can try using uuid instead, that is the default.

menuentry 'Mandriva 2010.1 x86-64 uuid' {
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
linux /boot/vmlinuz root=UUID=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ro
initrd /boot/initrd.img

I boot using this all the time, just not /boot/vmlinuz, but /vmlinuz, for my OS sets syslink to / (from /boot); and I don't worry about kernel changes, all will be set to latest.

Barry, seems we don't have much luck recently, but I am not the superstitious type. :)

Good luck, I mean - go break a leg :)  - Goh Lip
