Hey guys I am having a problem with dual booting. I am quite new at this, but this is what I have tried to do thus far. Here is a picture of my hard drive:
hdc1 = 19 GB linux
hdc2 = 1 GB linux swap #both for FC4
hdc3 = 19 GB linux
hdc4 = 1 GB linux swap #both for Slack
The bootable partition is hdc1, which is where i installed grub for FC4. I installed Slack just fine, but I did not install the boot loader. Then, in FC4, I mounted /dev/hdc3 and copied the contents of /boot into the the /boot file on hdc1, so I could boot both operating systems. I then changed my grub.conf file to look like this: (this is what I do not understand)
title Fedora Core (2.6.13-1.1532_FC4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.13-1.1532_FC4 root=LABEL=/
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 root=LABEL=/
kernel /boot/isolinux/vmlinuz root=/dev/hd3
When I try to boot Slack, it says it is unable to mount the root partition.
Under the slackware title, I don't understand how grub is configured, i.e. what numbers to put in where, specifically for the "root(hd0,0)" and "kerenl ........." lines. Could anyone tell me how the file is configured or what values I should put in there to be able to choose which system to boot?
