So the good news is that I executed these commands and:

Sure:


menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-23-server' --class ubuntu --class
gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
recordfail
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,5)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set
986c6680-aa00-479d-9950-558000f6f085
linux /vmlinuz-2.6.32-23-server root=/dev/mapper/ubuntu-root
ro quiet splash
initrd /initrd.img-2.6.32-23-server
}


menuentry "Desktop -- openSUSE 11.2 - 2.6.31.12-0.2 (on /dev/sdb1)" {
insmod ext2
set root='(hd1,1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set
dcfdbc7f-95f9-4dbc-bdc7-e5d66df9d76c
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.31.12-0.2-desktop
