Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As root run grub, tell it which partition it's menu.lst file is on then tell it to install itself on the MBR. Grub counts from 0 so numbers are one less than normal. It also uses numbers instead of letters so for example /dev/hda5 is (hd0,4) to grub. /dev/hda3 is (hd0,2) and /dev/hdb7 is (hd1,6). So if your Ubuntu is on /dev/hda4 issue the commands
I don't know if this helps at all but here is my stress-free and trouble-free way of multibooting.
I install the bootloader of each operating system into the root partition of each operating system. This eliminates trying to configure lilo or grub for booting different kernels.
I have GAG installed in the MBR. GAG is a boot manager capable of booting up to nine operating systems. Gag will work with modern hardware including large drives and sata drives. Gag is free.
I can install and remove operating systems at my liesure.
I have NO trouble with this system.
I know this sounds like a GAG commercial but I tried and searched out many of these bootmanagers and all others had trouble.
