I need help making a GRUB menu.lst for an installed distro that won't boot
I tried to chainload elive by placing its GRUB in the root of its partition. GRUB did not install their or even in the MBR of hda after several attempts. The distro DID install on hdi5 but GRUB did not install at all, not even "stage 1". I tried from the GRUB prompt: "root (hdx,y), then "setup (hdx,y) but there was not enough GRUB there to even fix it.
How can I figure out what the Direct boot entry for the kernel, init, vmlinuz or whatever should be so that I can make that kind of entry and boot this OS?
To be clear, I need or need help making a GRUB menu.lst entry that will boot elive 6.6. I know where it is installed but I don't know how to find the information that GRUB will need to boot it.
Their forum is very scarce and it might be weeks or never before anyone helps there... that is why I posted here.
