In a terminal you could do "sudo ls /mnt/hda7/boot/linux24".
You might not need sudo at the beginning, depending on your setup. Also, if mounted in Ubuntu, "mnt" might be some other directory name (not likely though).
If it's there it should show the filename, otherwise an error saying "No such file or directory".
Or you can open emelfm and browse to that directory.
It might also be helpfl if you told us how you installed DSL. It's possible that the files are not in the right place.
All I did to install it, since I already had grub installed in another distro, was to mount the ISO, copy the files onto an ext partition, and add an entry to grub.
In my case the ext partition is /dev/hda3 and grub is on /dev/hda1. I mounted the DSL iso and /dev/hda3 in the hda1 system (can also be done from DSL liveCD). Then I copied the KNOPPIX and boot directories from the iso's mount point to /mnt/hda3. Then I added an entry to /boot/grub/menu.lst (or /mnt/hda1/boot/grub/menu.lst if you are doing it from liveCD):
