Dual booting SuSE and Fedora Core 2


I currently triple booting SuSE 9, Windows XP and Windows 2K with GRUB. I would like to play around with Fedora Core 2. Will the fedora install detect my GRUB installation and add the appropriate lines? If not, is it possible to just add the SuSE kernel boot lines from the menu.1st to the menu.1st that fedora installs? I think it should work as long as the partition information doesn't change, but I don't want to screw it up.

Awww man!! FC2 is out huh? Cool.... Something to play with. My expierence tells me that rarely will a distro detect all other distro's and modify accordingly... I would just not install grub when Fedora asks you. Pick "don't use a bootloader". Then boot up with suse and mount your newly installed fedora partition and have a look in /boot to see what the kernel image name is. Then I would append a new line to SuSE's /boot/grub/menu.lst...... Thats what I would do anyway..... Might help to make a boot disk for Fedora just in case...
