I'd assume the /etc/grub.conf file Helles posted was from sdb2, that just based upon a comparison of my /etc/grub.conf files. I'm wondering if this file serves a purpose and, if so what. Wasn't aware of this files existence before today?? I've checked the other distros on my computer and none have a grub.conf in the /etc directory.

Getting extremely confusing!

Finally, the end

Hi everyone, one final post to this thread to say that I never did get the dual boot working and I got fed up. I now have a single boot system with SUSE11.0 and am pretty happy. The boys at SUSE didn't really take the bug report seriously and it remains a mystery why this relatively simple configuration doesn't work. In the end the best solution is the simplest on that works and I took it... Many thanks for your help, we really should have nailed it...
