sample lines for adding gensplash

I just took a peek at /etc/splash/grub.sample and found some interesting things. Below is an excerpt:

# For fbvesa-tng you need to use a command of the format
#     video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@70
# rather than vga=0x318 to set you framebuffer resolution

title  Arch
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/kernel26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part3 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@70 splash=verbose,theme:darch console=tty1
initrd (hd0,0)/fbsplash-darch-1024x768

This sure is different from:

# (2) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux  [ Archck Kernel ]
root  (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26archck root=/dev/hdb1 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@70 splash=verbose,theme:darch console=tty1
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.15-archck.img

The confusion is about

kernel (hd0,0)/kernel26

my line is

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26archck

Is it the new syntax?

Re: sample lines for adding gensplash

It's not new syntax.  You could add (hd1,0) in front of your lines and it'd work just fine -- all it does is tell grub on which partition to look for the files you're mentioning. 

In the example, /boot has its own partition.  That's why there's no /boot before the kernel name.
