Thanks for your reply. Good info here.
The LVM is not currenty my first choice, it was default and I didn't know any better! Probably wouldn't do it again.
Yes, sorry, the new HDD is internal.
Just have a few clarifying questions...
4) edit your fedora any time to add a new chainloader
I'm not really sure how chainloaders work or even what the basic concept of them is. Can you explain?
So, would puting that quote in my current menu.lst boot Kubuntu from hd1,0?
6) because you will have 2 drives you have 2 mbrs so if your bios allows bios boot order detection from drive 0 to drive1 you could choose to have kubuntu in mbr of drive 1 and edit its menu to chainload xp and fed....but if the bios boot order changes you edit the hd numbers
Are you saying that I could boot from hd1 and use grub there to boot the desired os? How is this different than just booting hd0 and doing the same thing and directing it to hd1 if needed?
I haven't yet installed it yet. The download has about another 35 min.
I'd like to try all of this when it's done.
Thanks for your help!
