I've installed Ubuntu and I'm trying to get Slackware on the computer as well. Ubuntu was setup flawlessly and is on the sda hard drive. I then downloaded GParted and setup a swap partition and ext3 partition for slackware. Slackware seemed to install fine, but it did not use the swap partition (I could only select the Ubuntu partition). I did not install Lilo. Now when I boot up, GRUB only sees Ubuntu and not slackware. Do I have to update GRUB so that it checks sdb (it's a different hard drive altogether)?
EDIT: I've recently learned that I have to update the menu.lst for GRUB. Of course, being a newbie, I have no idea what I have to add, and the example only helps slightly. I don't wanna mess it up (yes, I've created a back up), and this is what I've come up with:
I'm not sure if I got root right, but slackware is installed on the second hard drive. I'm also unsure of what to put for kernel.
