Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

so i recently reinstalled my centos hdd and at one time had my hackintosh HDD & windows drive working with it. playing with the grub file i got windows to boot as default and the centos drive just fine(windows switched to the MacOS line and i just changed the title and location in the list). Now i can't seem to find the right location of the MacOS(and if i boot the drive straight from bios it starts just fine.
**note: if you look at the grub.conf you'll see that i was trying to take a shot in the dark to find the Mac Drive.**
any help would be appreciated - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

[root@localhost iceman]# fdisk -l
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sdc'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
[root@localhost iceman]# cat /etc/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_livedvd-lv_root
# initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img
The Mac is on sdc1 so the (hd2,0) line should work if you have the boot files there. The problems might be that it is GPT and the other smaller drives are MBR. I don't use UEFI/GPT so that's basically a guess. Can't usually mix them.
