You haven't specified which boot loader you are using, so I will assume
it is GRUB.  You can see what GRUB is using by editing /etc/grub.conf.

An example of mine is shown below. (note some lines are broken by the
e-mail client.)  I have four boot options to various systems listed.
===============================================

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this
file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#root (hd0,7)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda8
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,10)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-20.9)
        root (hd0,7)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.9 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-20.9.img
title Windows XP
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2096.nptl)
        root (hd0,10)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2096.nptl ro root=LABEL=/1
hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2096.nptl.img
title Red Hat Linux 8 for Dummies (2.4.20-20.8)
        root (hd0,4)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.8 ro root=LABEL=/12 hdc=ide-scsi
hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-20.8.img

============================

Hope this helps.
