Smile Adding Slackware 13 to Grub Boot loader of Ubuntu 9.10

Hello All
I'm using slackware 13 and now i want to add slackware 13 to grub .How do i have to do it ?
Slackware is great to learn because i've a lot of linux using slackware than using any other distro. But some programs are dependant on other which i was not able to install ,they call it dependencies. Even though compiling from source is great but runnning the program is a problem as the program terminates may be because of some dependency not installed.The same goes with sbopkg and others ..
May be the Fact is that I still have to learn alot about slackware and Linux so that i may over come these problems soon ..

As of now i'm thinking of installing Ubuntu along with Slackware13 as this system is used by everybody in the family.
How to add slackware to Ubuntu's grub.......

Thanks In advance

Open the file /boot/grub/menu.lst on ubuntu and there are guides in there to add entries for other distros.

Maybe Ubuntu 9.10 uses GRUB2. Then there is no menu.lst, but another file. GRUB2 has a different set-up than GRUB-legacy

If you do not change the defautlt Ubuntu 9.10 use GRUB2 that means that you do have GRUB.CFG instead of a menu.lst.
But even in GRUB.cfg it is possible to add a other distro if it is not detected during install .
On the UBUNTU side you will find a lot of information about GRUB 2
