GRUB configurartion to show both RedHat and Mandrake

I had installed RedHat previously and tonight I installed Mandrake 9.1 and when it rebooted after the install it only showed Mandrake in the GRUB menu.

I have done an updatedb and tried to locate grub.conf (as root) but nothing come up.

Anyone have any ideas how to go about con redhat dual-boot GRUBfiguring GRUB to show all my OSs? Thanks...

Well if you don't have a grub.conf file then I thinks its impossible. You should have it in /boot/grub/grub.conf . Could you post the contents if you find it?

Unless of course you've got a lilo.conf If you installed mandy as your "last" install, then normally it's default Boot Loader is lilo, so a "grub.conf" probably won't exist. You just need to edit your lilo.conf to show the RH partition and kernel...
