Booting Fedora 12 from Ubuntu's Grub2, ERROR: NOT AN ASSIGNEMENT
Okay, so I'm trying to boot my Fedora 12 partition, but am failing miserably, when I try to boot Fedora 12 I get "ERROR: NOT AN ASSIGNMENT"

my 40_custom file is as follows:

exec tail -n +3 $0
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

menuentry "Fedora ("
  set root = (hd0,2)
  linux /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=9990b87d-e7e1-4859-be4c-2885b8e6eb46  LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initramfs-
#menuentry "Fedora 12"
#set root = (hd0,3)
#linux /boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda3 ro quiet splash
#initrd /boot/initramfs-

Note that I tried this using the entry that is currently commented out and I had the same result. Does anyone know what is wrong? The entry that is currently uncommented came directly from the grub entry created by fedora itself (before I installed ubuntu).

Thanks in advance,

Does Grub2 allow ( and ) in menu entries ?

Why dont you try your fedora entries by removing the parenthesis from the entry name?
