As far as I know, grub doesn't use the Linux /dev/ nodes to access
disks.  The syntax for both IDE and SATA drives should be the same for
your menu.lst, so something along the lines of groot=(hd0,0).  Since
you are using the secondary drive (in Linux, /dev/sdb) I guess it
would probably be groot=(hd1,0).  You'd still want kopt=root=/dev/sdb1
as it is though, since that parameter is intended for the kernel and
not the bootloader.
