its quite unusual configuration but id like to know if its possible to have fedora and redhat dual boot. now i have fedora installed. i think i could use fedoras boot partition for redhat (but without formatting it) and modify grub.conf. am i right?
yes..just make space for redhat, install it (but don't install the bootloader, only make bootdisk if you need it). after this boot into your fedora installation and modify grub's config so it knows where redhat is..I guess that's it.
That's what I'm trying to do too (although with Fedora and Mandrake).
How do you modify the configuration of grub to make it find the extra linux kernel?
I tried to modify the grub.conf file but so far I couldn't boot Mandrake...
this is a part of my grub.conf:
title Fedora Core (2.6.5-1.358)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
#--this was added by me
title Red Hat 9 (2.4.20-8)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=/dev/hdb5 rhgb quiet
