Post Grub and NetBSD

Hello people!!!

I recently have installed NetBSD on my HDD, an it is with ubuntu and windows but it doesn' t boot, I read many tutorials of how to install NetBSD in this way and how to use grub to boot it, so my NetBSD install didn't write anything in MBR, but my grub always show something like "file not found", can you check what is wrong on my grub.cfg file and tell me how to fix it, and how I can heck what's the correct path for my NetBSD partition? that's because NetBSD it's supposed to be installed in the third partition of my HDD, but an "fdisk -l" under ubuntu shows this:

root@xebuzer0-ThinkCentre-Charchina:~# fdisk -l

Disco /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80000000000 bytes
255 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 9726 cilindros
Unidades = cilindros de 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Tamaño de sector (lógico / físico): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Tamaño E/S (mínimo/óptimo): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Identificador de disco: 0x45da0464

Disposit. Inicio Comienzo Fin Bloques Id Sistema
/dev/sda1 * 1 26 208813+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 27 5126 40959090 7 HPFS/NTFS
La partición 2 no termina en un límite de cilindro.
/dev/sda3 9119 9727 4881836 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 5126 9119 32074689 a9 NetBSD
La partición 4 no termina en un límite de cilindro.

Las entradas de la tabla de particiones no están en el orden del disco (The entries in the partition table are not in disk order)

and, if is usefull an "grub-install -v" shows:

grub-install (GRUB) 1.99~rc1-13ubuntu3

Thanks in advance and greetings

PD: I've read this 2 links without some success
and sorry if is in the wrong category, I'm new at the forum

My grub entry:

menuentry "NetBSD 6.0" {
insmod ufs2
set root=(hd0,3)
knetbsd /netbsd --root=wd0a
