The proper vmlinz line

I have installed Mandriva successfully. It works fine.
It is on sda1 partition.

Afterwards I have installed Fedora 16 linux.
Fedora Core 64 bit is on sda5 partition.

I can’t get Fedora linux on to the screen. It complains the following line is wrong.
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 [ THIS LINE IS INCORRECT.]
How do I write the correct line?


[ The menu.lst file from Mandriva is as follows:]
Code:
 [root@localhost grub]# cat menu.lst
timeout 15
color black/cyan yellow/cyan
gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/gfxmenu
default 0
