There is only one file to edit - /etc/grub.d/40_custom. I think Tom H is
suggesting you have

   menuentry "DOS (loader) (on /dev/sda1)" {
           insmod part_msdos
           insmod fat
           set root='(hd0,1)'
           chainloader +1

You can check DOS is on /dev/sda1 using 'cfdisk /dev/sda'.
