With great caution I agree with Karl here !!!!

It is neater to use chainloader +1 if you have several different installs

When you update the "chained" kernel the "chained" grub.conf is updated automatically.
On one machine I have a "production" F7 and "development" F7 and F8s

I do not have to play with grub.conf on /dev/sda1

title F7 pagham (2.6.23.1-10.fc7)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-10.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/root_pagham 
	initrd /initrd-2.6.23.1-10.fc7.img

title F7 Indirect boot of harddisk
	root (hd0,4)
	chainloader +1
	
title F8 Indirect boot of fuerte
	root (hd0,5)
	chainloader +1
