      hi all,
      I have Dell inspiron 510m, I installed Linux on it after resizing the
      partitions. Excluding the linux partitions, following is part of
      partition table.

      Disk /dev/hda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes
      255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7296 cylinders
      Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

      Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
      /dev/hda1 1 5 40131 e W95 FAT16
      /dev/hda2 * 6 642 5116702+ 17 Hidden
      /dev/hda3 643 6936 50556555 5 Extended
      /dev/hda4 6937 7295 2883667+ de Dell Utility

      While there is no problem running I both XP & linux (debian sarge), I
      wanted to boot the Dell utility partition.

      I added following for it for grub configuration

      title Dell Diagnostics
      root (hd0,0)

      when selected grub shows error unknown partition type, couldnt find
      valid image etc.

      What could be the solution.
