[opensuse] can't install suse 11 grub in the MBR



I originally had grub installed in suse 11 and I installed another distro
which wipped out suse 11 grub, now I can't boot suse 11.

I'm trying to install suse 11 grub to the MBR so I can boot suse 11and get the following errors:

linux-uwal:~ # grub

grub> root=(hd0,11)
root=(hd0,11)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
grub> setup (hd0)

linux-uwal:/boot/grub #


stage 1 and stage 2 are in /boot/grub

I can install any grub from any distro by doing:

#grub
> root=(hd0,*)
>setup (hd0)
>quit

Why can't I do it in suse 11?
