dual booting fedora core 2 and mandrake: can't boot mandrake any more

I've read about the bug in Fedora Core 2 and the 2.6 kernel that messes up the drive geometry that makes WinXP unbootable. I don't know if this is the same thing I am encountering.

I originally had Mandrake 10 installed all by itself on my 40g box, I wanted to dual boot with another distro just to see what the difference was, also didn't want to make a habit of the first thing I tried. I'm new to Linux and I want to learn as much as I can as my experience thus far has been great.

So I resized the partition to give Fedora Core 2 about 10g, installed it and everything went fine. I also installed GRUB and added an entry for Mandrake pointing to the partition it is installed on.

But now when I try to boot from GRUB into Mandrake I recieve this error:

Booting 'Mandrake'
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
Error 13: Invalid or unupported executable format.
Press any key to continue...

What happened? I'm assuming that all my data and my Mandrake install is all there, I just need to find a way to boot into it. Is this at all related to the bug I mentioned at the beginning of the post? And finally... How do I fix it?

Thanks in advance.

if its fc2 related try this

if your error remains 13 something has happened to your image and you may need to put another kernel in its place to see what happens
