As far as I know these two are mutually exclusive. If using the grub
compatibility stuff in FILO then AUTOBOOT_FILE will never be used.

I don't like grub and thus always stick to only using AUTOBOOT_FILE.

In your case the line looks fine if the kernel is stored in
/boot/vmlinuz, if it's /vmlinuz then change to hda3 instead of hda1
in the first argument.

Oh, and make sure you build FILO with reiserfs support if the kernel
is on your root partition.
