I have a triple-boot setup:
Windows on the first primary partition
FreeBSD on the 2nd primary partition
Linux /boot partition on the 3rd primary partition
The rest of Linux in the extended partition

Grub resides in the Linux /boot partition. File /boot/grub/menu.lst looks
like this:


title Windows
	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
	chainloader +1

title FreeBSD
root (hd0,1,a)
kernel /boot/loader

title		Libranet GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.19
root		(hd0,4)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.19 root=/dev/hda5 ro hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
