I am new to this and I was wondering what it is that I need to copy, and how, to /boot/grub/menu.lst file. This is what came up with cat menu.lst.


[root@localhost grub]# cat menu.lst
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,6)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda7
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=2
timeout=60
splashimage=(hd0,6)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=f8abad43-9c98-4839-9f11-f362c701be58 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686.img
title Fedora (2.6.25-14.fc9.i686)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=f8abad43-9c98-4839-9f11-f362c701be58 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.img
title Other
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


Thanks for the help

You will need to add a similar section to refer to your Mandriva installation. The "root (hd0,6)" line will be "root (hd0,5)". You will have to deduce the rest of the lines from looking at "/boot" on your Mandriva partition.

You can mount your Mandriva partition in Fedora using
Code:
$ mkdir /mnt/system
$ mount -text3 /dev/sda5 /mnt/system
Then look in "/mnt/system/boot" for the names of the Mandriva kernel and initrd files.
