Grub in Mandrake doesn't give Red Hat boot option


I just installed Mandrake 9.2 again. I have it on hda and Red Hat on hdb. Grub doesn't not give me the option of booting Red Hat when the computer starts. How can I fix this?

You'll need to edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst (?) file.
just append the section from the hdb menu to the hda menu.

look at the grub help, it's quite simple.

dunno, new to grub myself.
read the grub help,
info grub
man grub

it's a good idea to get to know your boot manager!

regards, billy

Lilo's configuration file is at /etc/lilo.conf

You can open the mandrake Control Center, now called Configure your Computer, open the boot icon, then open the boot loader option. Click configure [in MDK 10 it is a 'next' button], this should let you add your RedHat insstalation using the Add button
