Booting Fedora 9 from USB using SuSE 10.1 and Grub

Hi All,

I guess I am a bit new to this and having read through several forums I am sure there is a solution. I have a laptop on which I have installed SuSE 10.1 some time ago. I also require Fedora 9 and want to run this from a external USB drive. I have installed Fedora 9 successfully on the USB drive, and during the installation specifically did not write changes to te MBR, but wrote it to the first boor record of the external drive.

I guess the next step is to add an entry to the GRUB boot loader of SuSE 10.1 in order to allow for an option to boot Fedora 9 from the USB drive. Can someone please help me or point me into a direction on how this can be achieved?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Kind Regards.
