You apparently have grub installed on MBR, i.e. 'setup (hd0)'.
For the above to work you need it _also_ on that partition
you are feeding to a chainloader, i.e. 'setup (hd0,0)' while
installing grub.

This works fine.  On my test box I have a quite a number of
different installations booted by such "two stage" method.
Putting all that into one flat 'grub.conf' file would be
unmaintainable.
