triple OS
WinXP ,RHEL ws-3 & FEDORA core 1 in 40 GB hard disk

Hi guys !
My machine already contains WIN XP & RHEL ws-3. And now i tried for the 3rd one FEDORA core-1.During my installation procedure the GRUB LOADER did not show RHEL(it shows only DOS and asks to select the loading priority). I tried a lot , i manually selected RHEL(root dir '\' & '\boot' in my grub loader) when my system boots it shows three OS but RHEL does't works or booting is failed.
If possible kindly detail the procedure.

Do you know on which drive your RHEL is installed and what kernel its running?

anand_pep 03-14-2005 03:12 PM

I have alloted 30 GB for win xp
and 10 GB for RHEL( 9.4 for '/'
500MB for'swap' & 107 for '/boot')

available partitons before linux: C,D,E,F&G:
active partition C:(WIN XP)
I deleted D: for RHEL and E: for FEDORA
For fedora ( i did the same partiton as RHEL)

I believe that type of kernel is Kernel2.xx
sorry sir if the version is wrong.If possible
guide me.

thanking you

What I meant is where is RHEL installed on your system in Linux terms e.g. mine is installed on /dev/hdb5.

anand_pep 03-14-2005 10:28 PM

RHEL ws-3

kernel 2.4.21-20.EL on an i686

/dev/hdc8 " /boot"
/dev/hdc9 " / "
/dev/hdc10 "swap"

thanks for replying
guide me

Try adding this to your grub.conf in Fedora,

title RHEL
        root (hd2,7)
        kernel (hd2,7)/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21-20.EL root=/dev/hdc8 vga=788
        initrd (hd2,7)/boot/initrd-2.4.21-20.EL.img

Make sure that you enter the right kernel an intrd.img or else RHEL won't boot.
