Thanks for the info. but i am still needing help...dont we all. lol
Ok so i repartationed my 250 GB HD. I placed Mandriva on first. Ubuntu has not been installed, yet. Here is how my hard drive is partationed
sda1 "/" mandriva
sda2 (i want to install ubuntu "/" here)
sda5 "/boot" mandriva
sda6 ( i want to install ubuntu /boot or /home here"
sda7 swap both
now when i install ubuntu it tells me "
hey the "/" and "/boot" are used already, pick something else."
when i pick something else ubuntu will not load.
how do i get it to mount. and where do i place the grub for ubuntu. TOTAL
