Dual boot grub config file on SuSE


I just installed SuSE 9.1 on a computer where I also have an existing version of Fedora Core 3. Fedora is located on hda4 extended partition with hda5 as the boot and hda6 with everything else. I just want to know how to modify the bootloader configuration file so that I'll also have the opportunity to boot Fedora in addition to SuSE. I've looked at the file already and tried what I thought would've fixed the problem, but no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I assume your installation of Fedora installed grub as its boot manager, right?

Soooo, why not boot into Suse, mount the Fedora partition that contains your /boot files, copy-&-paste the entries listed in Fedora's grub.conf into your Suse grub.conf.

Or am I missing something?

No, no... not at all. I was only trying to get more information out of you. Sometimes posters forget to list what they've already tried, and that info can be very useful in trying to debug.

No worries I've had my share of similar posts.
