Which you only get if you try to let GRUB "mount" a filesystem found
on a partition.

Assuming that at boot-time your F10 GRUB maps /dev/sdb to 'hd1':

title Mint 8
    rootnoverify (hd1)
    chainloader +1

[And if you ever feel like installing a dist's boot loader not into the
MBR but into the boot sector of a partition, substitute the 'hd1'
appropriately).
