Grub Multiboot question


need some help... I like CollegeLinux but I also like Redhat, so I ditched Windows and installed Redhat 9 on Hard drive 1 (C and installed CollegeLinux on Hard drive 2 (D. I installed CollegeLinux first so Grub took over instead of Lilo, for some reason I can't get CollegeLinux to boot up in Grub, Redhat works fine, anyone know what to put in the grub.conf, to make my CL boot?

if you remember the /boot partition and the / partitions, you can add this to your grub.conf or menu.lst as the case may be,

title CollegeLinux
root (hd1,n) // where n is the /boot partition
kernel vmlinuz<tab> root=/dev/hdbn ro // pickup a kernel

that didn't seem to work, I rebooted the computer, and now it freezes at "Loading Grub Stage 2" anyway to edit the grub.conf while outside of linux, cause I don't think I can get back in there... I can use the boot disc and get a boot: thing, but that's it,. Any suggestions?

do you get the grub menu OR do you get the

grub>

prompt?

at the prompt, you can try the root command and the kernel command, the initrd (if you have any initrd files) and then type boot

I've just decided to reinstall, I tend to give up easy ...
but it said


Grub Loading Stage2
somethin about in 10 seconds it'll attempt to boot the default (tried that, didn't boot, and it also says if I want to run linux with different paremeters to type 'linux <paremeters>'

Boot:
