dual booting with DSL using open SUSE 10.2 grub


I am running opensuse 10.2 using its the opensuse grub boot loader.

Now I want to dual boot with DSL running off my SD card in my laptops inbuilt cardreader.

I know all I most probably have to do is add a few lines to some file. But since I don't want to spend days trying to figure out how to add a OS to grub.

DSL says the SD card is 'sda1'.

My computer is an EeePc. =D

you first need to check your bios that a card reader is a valid option in the boot order.

if not, you are unlucky. BTW my pc is a few years old but I do not have such an option.
