Ubuntu no longer a boot option after installing Fedora


Ubuntu is still in one piece and on my computer. I just can't get to it because the Fedora booter didn't include it as an option. Could someone please help me with this problem.

You can edit the grub configuration file and add the correct line(by looking at fedora lines).

Mount the disk or partition with Ubuntu.

First look in the old \boot\grub\menu.lst file to see how ubuntu is starting. (in the Ubuntu drive/partition)

You can do that only as root!

Copy that menu point to your new \boot\grub\menu.lst

Restart and it should be possible to make a new choice.
