Linux on second drive

I have Windows Vista installed on an SATA drive by itself.
I have OpenSUSE installed on an IDE drive:

/dev/sda1: NTFS
/dev/sda2: FAT
/dev/sda3: swap
/dev/sda4: /

I've installed GRUB into the "root partition" and "boot partition" but I am still not able to boot into my linux partition.

I've also tried using NeoGRUB and I type (hd1,4) (strangely the numbering has changed) and it finds an ext2fs partition. However when I type kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 (or any variation thereof) it says file not found.

Have you tried to install the Linux entry in EasyBCD with specifying "GRUB is not installed to the bootsector" before adding the entry?

Yes I have. The same problem from NeoGRUB applies:

"I type (hd1,4) (strangely the numbering has changed) and it finds an ext2fs partition. However when I type kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda4 (or any variation thereof) it says file not found."

This software worked perfectly when I had linux installed on the first drive... perhaps there is some drive numbering problem?
