Dual-booting an old FC w/Ubuntu?

I recently installed Ubuntu Linux on my Primary Master, with an old copy of FC2 on my Primary Slave. Both show up in GRUB; Ubuntu works fine, but I cannot boot into any form of FC2, which I installed on a different computer, then moved the hard drive. I'm pretty sure I need to change my commands before booting, but I don't know what to edit.

Any thanks would be appreciated.

post grub.conf and I'll have a look. Anyway, installing an OS on a different computer and then moving the drive to another one isn't exactly a safe way of using an OS on a system. Unless the 2 systems are exactly identical there are bound to be numerous errors due to different hardware configurations.
