Does it hang, or is that a grub prompt you're seeing?  It won't go to a
menu.  You'll have to type commands manually.  From the looks of this
thread, it seems like you're getting familiar enough with grub to be
able to do that by now =)

Basically you need to type just what you would in a stanza of menu.lst
right into the grub prompt, something like this:

root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.2.20-idepci ro root=/dev/hda5
initrd /initrd.img-2.2.20-idepci
