Installing Ubuntu + 3 other OS's (my steps so far)


Hi,

I'm trying to install Ubuntu, Windows 7, Meego, and Android x86 for a project. Here is what I have done so far:

Partition the drive into 4 primary partitions of equal size (10gb each).

Install Windows7, Android, and Meego onto separate partitions, in that order.

Then, install Ubuntu, hoping that GRUB automatically detects the other OS's and creates entries for them.

Unfortunately, the only entries in GRUB are for Ubuntu and Windows 7. How do I get to the other 2 OS's (Android and Meego) to show up?

I appreciate the help.

manually add them to the GRB files with an editor. That's how I do these things with lilo.conf
