Hi to all @ LQ!!
Could someone please help me out with the multiple booting up for FC3 and Mandrake!!
I know that there is way to do it, but i havent got much information how to edit the GRUB.
What i have done now is..
I have installed FC3 in one of the Partitions. I have installed mandrake and when it came to writing the boot loader to MBR ( i guess thats the right term), i skipped the process so that it wouldnt over write the FC3 boot loader.
Now i haven't got a clear idea of how to edit the GRUB file in the FC3 so that it will allow to boot Mandrake to boot up.
this is the print of my fdisk
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hdb2 14 1288 10241437+ 83 Linux
/dev/hdb3 1289 1364 610470 82 Linux swap
/dev/hdb4 1365 2630 10169145 5 Extended
/dev/hdb5 1365 2630 10169113+ 83 Linux
this is a 80GB HD. I dont know wich (/hdb4 or /hdb5) that i installed Mandrake
My FC3 grub.conf looks like this
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
Kernal /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/rhgb quiet
title Windows XP Proff
Is this way of partitioning it alright?
I cant wait for the time that i could really see all done perfectly....
But too much of
reading from the net has left me @ a certain level of understanding. But i am not really clear what to do.
Thank you for all the time and effort guys...
