Unhappy configure a tri-boot system with Windows XP, SuSE 9.1 and Ubuntu 8.04.


A client has a personal computer (Pentium 4 with 512MB RAM).
The system contains one Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 (model 6Y080L042011) 80 GB internal IDE hard drive. The client would like you to configure a tri-boot system with Windows XP, SuSE 9.1 and Ubuntu 8.04. The client has the following requirements:


1. Windows XP needs a 40GB NTFS partition.

2. The client would also like a 1GB DOS FAT partition so files can
be moved easily between operating systems.

3. SuSE and Ubuntu should share a common /home directory of 20GB.

4. The client would like to use GRUB as the boot manager with XP the
default OS.

guys.....help me......

Why do you configure the grub manually. Or why do you need to do that?
Just install gurb and it will look for the pre installed distributions and windows installations and configure it itself. just remember to install grub on the mbr of the hard drive.
