Hi. I have been running Fdora8 happily for months but decided I wanted to run Ubuntu along side it in some empty space on my single large hard drive. Here is how it went:
1. I popped in the ubuntu install dvd and during the partitioning section, selected "Guided - Use largest Contiguous Free Space", which was about 90 gigs.
2. The install informed me that sda2 and sda7 would be wiped and partitioned which looked correct as my Fedora install is on sda6.
3. The install went fine and the machine rebooted to a grub list that included three entries for ubuntu, one for a dell partitioning utility, and NONE for Fedora.
4. Googling the matter I found someone who had the reverse problem nd just needed to add their missing distru back to the grub list. It seems to make sense and I am trying to do the same now.
5. Using the procedure for mounting a LVM here: http://www.linux-sxs.org/storage/fedora2ubuntu.html
I have been able to mount and peruse my old Fedora install, but the problem is that the boot directory is missing. I needed to get into the boot directory in order to copy the vmlinuz and initrd files so that I can use them putting an entry for fedora back into the grub os list.
So my question is this: Given the described circumstances, how do I add my fedora back to the OS list in the grub boot loader? Has anyone here wrestled with this and maybe could give me some pointers? Thanks!
