Unhappy Triple booting


At this moment I use Windows Xp suse 10.3 64 bits version
But on my disk there is still suse 10.3 32 bits version
So grub gives the following options :
1) Suse 10.3 64 bits version
2) suse 10.3 64 bits version failsafe
3) Suse 10.3 32 bits version failsafe
4) Windows XP

Instead of suse 10.3 32 bits version I like to use an others linux distro
and of course keeping the rest of my distros

I am not totally sure How to do this


Any help is most welcome


regards

ron lau

try reading my signature...basically you edit the grub menu.lst to conform with your wishes.

when you install new distros......if you keep the current one, you have 2 main choices with the new one...install the new bootloader into its / parition or its /boot partition and add an entry to the existing bootloader grub menu for the chainloader

or

if you have thoughts the new distro is the way to go, install grub into the mbr but then you will need to check the new distro has entries for ms etc
