ok so recently i tried tri-booting my comp with slackware to mostly increase my learning...prior to this i had dual booted fedora and windows.
here is my menu.lst
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda5
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (18.104.22.168-217.2.3.fc11.i686.PAE)
kernel /vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-217.2.3.fc11.i686.PAE ro root=UUID=3c022a34-5da8-45b6-a0ec-3165386ede7c rhgb quiet
title Fedora (126.96.36.199-213.fc11.i686.PAE)
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-213.fc11.i686.PAE ro root=UUID=3c022a34-5da8-45b6-a0ec-3165386ede7c rhgb quiet
title Fedora (184.108.40.206-167.fc11.i686.PAE)
kernel /vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-167.fc11.i686.PAE ro root=UUID=3c022a34-5da8-45b6-a0ec-3165386ede7c rhgb quiet
anyways i added the slackware part and i wasnt really sure about the difference between the root and rootnoverify i prob should have went with root but whatever.
anyways i also wasnt sure about the kernel and im not sure how to find that out.
when i boot slackware from the grub menu it says it isnt mounted...does this mean i did something wrong while installing it... cause it said it installed fine with out any errors.
sry bout the long post
any help would be appreciated
