Hi, I need a little help configuring GRUB for a second Linux distro (Slackware) on my system that already has WindowsME and Red Hat 8.0.
When I installed RH8, it recommended to create a /boot partition, so I did.
When I look in my grub.conf file I see
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg...
Does this mean that for subsequent Linux entries in the grub.conf file, (in particular the Slackware that I'm about to install) GRUB is going to look for the kernel and initrd files in the /boot partition, which up to now contains only Red Hat stuff?
I've read a lot of posts saying, go ahead and just drop your new kernels into the /boot partition and you're done. I've also seen a lot of posts saying don't mix your kernels.
So, what if I don't want to mix my Slackware files in with the Red Hat files that are currently in the /boot partition? How does GRUB find them in Slackware's own partition? Do I even have a choice?
