Adding Puppy frugal install to GRUB


Greetings.

Would add a Puppy frugal install to Mint's GRUB.

1- I dont even find 'menu.lst', maybe 'grub.cfg' is what needs configuration?

2-I have the Puppy template for 'menu.lst', where should I insert it, and what commands should be used?

Code:
If you have GRUB installed, find the 'menu.lst' file (usually in /boot
in the partition in which GRUB is installed) and insert this:

title Puppy Linux 501 frugal in sda5 dir puppy501
rootnoverify (hd0,4)
kernel /puppy501/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy501 nosmp
initrd /puppy501/initrd.gz

If you have GRUB4DOS installed, find the 'menu.lst' file (usually in /
in the partition in which GRUB4DOS is installed) and insert this:

title Puppy Linux 501 frugal in sda5 dir puppy501
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies /puppy501/initrd.gz
  kernel /puppy501/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy501 nosmp
  initrd /puppy501/initrd.gz
And the Mint 'grub.cfg':

Code:

# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub

Hello ldmn

here is grub2 grub.conf for puppy frugal

Code:
menuentry "Puppy Linux 501 frugal in sda5 dir puppy501" {
	set root=(hd0,4)
	search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set (put output of "blkid" as root here)
        kernel /puppy501/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy501 nosmp
        initrd /puppy501/initrd.gz
}
to really do it though check it /etc/default/grub

Or you could've just installed Puppy's grub on the /boot partition of the Puppy install, then run sudo update-grub to in Mint and it will find Puppy and add it automatically.
