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.

yeah, I know I should have one /boot, unfortunately I have /boot for each partition,
my grub conf is:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda6 hdc=ide-scsi
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-bf2.4 ro root=/dev/hda8 hdc=ide-scsi
this is in the RH /boot and loads RH, Debian(supposedly) and XP (Luser)
whe I get around to it, I will have separate partition for /boot Iguess that means re installing all my Linux OS's or could i just create a new partition and move boot to it?
first of all.
try not to uninstall everything when you have problem.
most of time u don't have to.
i never done installing two linux on one system.
and i use lilo
this is my rough guess what u can do.
it won't cause dmg to your system so u might well try it
your rh has /boot
your grub tries to access /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-bf2.4 (debian)
which prolly doesn't exist on your rh /boot directory
obviously it wont find it..
so i would try to cp debian kernel img onto /boot on your red hat
one thing bothers me, System.map also does differ, and i don't know if it'll be ok to share one System.map
 if  doesn't work
create a seperate partition (10-15mg)
compile kernel from source
move /boot to /boot2 on both redhat/debian
mount the newly created partition on /boot
/dev/hda6 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
u need to replace 6 to whatever partition number u just created
ext3 to whatever file system you created the partition with
run grup initialization..( with lilo, just running /sbin/lilo will reinitialize lilo. i don't know how to do it with grub)
