Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Mandriva 2009 X86_64 suse 11.3 X86_64 Centos X86_64 Debian X86_64 Linux MInt 86_64 OS X
Which GRUB or LIlo do you use to boot you're distros ?
Meaning from which distro.
Did you install Salix as the last distro ?
If so do Salix use Lilo Or GRUb when it is the only Os on the system ?
And where did you install Salix GRUB or LILO ?
The Suse menu lst entry appears to be correct if Salix is on hda11. I have never used Salix but from what I have read it does use lilo by default. When you installed Salix and if you were given an option as to where to install the boot loader you should have selected /. When you are chainloading a linux distro all you are doing is getting grub to boot the partition the distro is in. When that partition is selected the distros boot loader in that partition should start its boot process. I think you should try and repair salix boot loader if you have that option.
To get your fdisk -l
You may use your Suse or if Salix is a live cd go to terminal and as root do the fdisk -l. The command from the grub prompt will not work. Post the results here and linus72 or I will try with the next step.
