OK.  The line:

   linux   /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.6-lfs-7.1 root=/dev/sda2 ro

should be pointing to sda1.

A way to check is to go to the grub command line and run (from memory):

   ls /boot

The file vmlinuz-3.2.6-lfs-7.1 should be there.

You might want to 'set pager=1' if scrolling is a problem.  The 
interface is fairly rudimentary.
