How can I boot either one of my hard drives /dev/hda or /dev/hdb, I have RH9 and FC2
 
Hello,
I have a single computer with two hard drives /dev/hda which contains
Redhat 9.0 (RH9.0) and /dev/hdb which contains Fedora Core 2 (FC2).

The problem is this. I installed FC2 last. Now I cannot automatically boot RH9 on /dev/hda the GRUB boot loader only shows the FC2 kernel. I have to use the boot floppy disk to get to the Redhat 9
installation on /dev/hda. Is there something I have do to fix this problem?


Thanks,
Godwin

Yes you can easily configure your grub.conf file under FC2 so that the ghrub would also show an entry for rh9.

Here's what you do,

1. copy the initrd and the vmlinuz file under /boot of your rh9 to /boot of fc2.
2. next you need to edit your grub.conf file. to do so, in a console type
vi /etc/grub/grub.conf
and add a line regarding your rh9. This is easy. I fyou still need help you can get back here.
