Installed Slack 9 rc1 this morning on hdb hda contains RH 8.0
i would like to experiment with Slack till im familiar enough with it to make the switch... everything looks fine and dandy.. i went through the install process and all looks good.During the configuration or Slack i of course didnt go with the install of grub or lilo cause it's already on there ..
BUT ! ; ) ( there had to be one.. )
When i got in hda in the /boot/grub/grub.conf and tried to make an entry
for slackware.. i found out that in the hdb /boot ( for slack ) there's NO
initrd entry at all.
a quick ls results :
config lost+found System.map-ide-2.4.20 vmlinuz-ide-2.4.20
config-ide-2.4.20 System.map vmlinuz
So where do i go from there . ?
do i need that initrd entry ( yes that's a n00b question ; )
in the grub.conf ?
Help on this will be appreciated.
RTFM didnt help .. and google looks quite clueless on this particular too..
Thanks in advance .
Looking forward to booting this slack real soon

Your grub on the other partition can't see the
/boot on /dev/hdb ... what you'll need to do is
to install lilo in //dev/hdb1 and tell grub in RH
to start hdb as if it were winDOHs :) ... no pointers
to any kernels or initrd.
