grub entry?


Could somebody perhaps advise (if this is possible) how to re-write and incorporate the following from lilo.conf into grub -

boot=/dev/hda
install=/boot/cboot.b
message=/boot/splash.lilo
timeout=300
map=/boot/map
prompt
fix-table
lba32
read-only
change-rules
reset
compact
image=/vmlinuz
label=Xandros_Desktop_3.0.1_OC
vga=0xf04
root=/dev/hda5
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.9-x1.gz
append="rw acpi=on "


Thanks for 'any' advice !

I tried this but it didn't work although did show Xandros in menu:

title XANDROS
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vimlinuz-2.6.9-x1.gz root=/dev/hda5
initrd (hd0,4)/boot/initrd

You want to install grub binaries then it will work.

grub-install /dev/hda(here according to your disk dirve it will change hdb or hdc etc).

This will create grub.conf file also automatically.

Thanks for the reply and the information. Unfortunately I can't install the grub binaries because the pc I am playing around with doesn't have an internet connection. However, well worth knowing for when I install other distros on this pc.
