What works for me:

title Fedora Core 5 test
        rootnoverify (hd1,5)
        chainloader +1

The FC5 test has grub installed on the boot sector of /dev/hdb6.

I'd imagine that if you have grub installed on the MBR of hda, you'd
want
        rootnoverify (hd1)
assuming that your BIOS is set to boot from SATA by preference.

Hope this helps,

James.
