Installed Fedora, which installed Grub - how to boot to Knoppix?

Knoppix 3.3 uses Lilo to boot, but I installed Fedora which uses Grub, and I want to be able to dual boot between the two. How can I get Knoppix 3.3 to boot from Grub?

Did you install Knoppix to the hard drive or booting from the cdrom as its a live type linux distro? If you installed to the hard drive, just edit your grub.conf and add it there to boot to. If you didn't install knoppix to the hd, just boot to the cd to start it.

I installed it to my harddrive. The question is, how would I just add it? I'm looking at the magical grub.conf but I still don't see how I can correctly add it. Sure, I could copy the Fedora Core line, but it uses kernel 2.6.1-1.65, while Knoppix 3.3 uses 2.4.24-xfs. With those facts, I still don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do. Any help would be appreciated.

In Google, type "Grub Manual"

One of the first options will be the user's manual that will explain everything you need.
