Mandriva and PCLinuxOS get KP with grub2


Howdy All,

So I currently have an Ubuntu/Mandriva/PCLinuxOS multiboot setup on my system. After I installed the latter two I setup Ubuntu's grub2 to be my default boot manager. After running my
Code:
sudo update-grub
command it successfully found and added entries for Mandriva and PCLinuxOS, however upon trying to boot into either of these distros (selecting them from the menu) I get some terminal output that ultimately ends in kernel panic.

Booting into Ubuntu works fine, any suggestions for what I can do to try and resolve the issue?

Regards,
~Jeff

GRUB and GRUB2 are conflicting each other.....

Start e.g. PCLinuxOS from the live-cd or live-usb, and do a redo-mbr...
ATTENTION
=> install the GRUB of PCLinuxOS on its own partition (root partition: for example /dev/sda4 -- thus NOT /dev/sda)

Then start Ubuntu, and do an update of grub2 => like that, the PCLinuxOS-line in grub2 will link to the GRUB of PCLinuxOS....

Similar, you can do for Mandriva I would think (because it has many similarities with PCLOS)
