i have searched and searched, but i can't find the answer i'm looking for. i don't know how the heck this red hat 9 machine got syslinux as it's boot loader, but i want to change it to grub and i can't seem to figure out how to do this. there is so little about syslinux on the internet and the wierd thing is that there is no syslinux.cfg on this rh9 machine either, but during boot i can clearly see that it is booting using syslinux 2.00.
and got this output:
# this device map was generated by anaconda
just curious, when i run:
i get this:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2 67860000 16476208 47936564 26% /
/dev/sda1 100692 25789 69704 28% /boot
none 1032444 0 1032444 0% /dev/shm
would that output from grub-install be correct then?
after i ran grub-install, i restarted the machine, but it still boots with syslinux. the thing is that i upgraded my kernel and rebooted, but the new kernel isn't being used, so i'm guessing that syslinux is crap and doesn't automatically update stuff like that, whereas both the grub.conf and lilo.conf were automatically updated. i don't know why i have 3 different boot loaders installed either. but anyways i want to get rid of syslinux and use grub. any help?
