Multi boot system


I have two hard disk drives. On one of them (D0) Windows XP is installed, and on the other one (D1) I installed Suse Linux 9.3. Some time later I installed Xandros Deluxe 3.0 on the second HD drive (D1). After that I am unable to access Suse Linux 9.3.

When the computer starts Xandros Boot Options screen appears as follows:

1. Windows XP
2. Xandros Desktop 3.0 Deluxe
3. Safe Video Mode
4. Configure (expert)

Is there any way of replacing Xandros Boot Options Menu for Suse’s, and to be able to have the following options available:

1. Windows XP
2. Suse Linux 9.3 Professional
3. Suse Linux 9.3 (Xen)
4. Xandros Desktop 3.0 Deluxe
5. Safe Video Mode
6. Configure (expert)
7. DVD ROM

What boot manager are you using?

edit the conf for the boot manager. eg: /etc/lilo.conf or /etc/grub.conf

Do you wish to install the Suse's bootloader in place of xandros or do you wish to just add entries to the xandros boot menu.

I believe that xandros uses grub as the bootloader so you should perhaps look at editing the /boot/grub/menu.lst file from xandros and add the suse entries.
