Simple question: Where in Mint install do you configure GRUB?


Hi! I have a dual boot system with PCLinuxOS and Ubuntu, and I want to add Mint Linux to it. I am at step 6 of 7 and have not yet found any GRUB/LILO config settings yet. Is this configured after installation or is it step 7? I need to install it to Mint's partition, not the MBR or else it will overwrite what I have done, so I don't want to miss it. Thanks!

I don't know where it will ask for this in Mint, but you don't even need to install grub in Mint if it's installed to the MBR for another distro. Just edit the menu.lst for that distro to include all everything it needs to boot Mint (you can copy most of whatever the entry is for the one in charge of the MBR, just change disk numbers and possibly the kernel name). You only need grub installed if you try to boot with chainloader

Chainloading is what I have been doing. I think I have it working, but I don't want to mess up what I have done by missing the GRUB/LILO config page.
