Beta testing Beta 8 -- Boot Loader screws up

Another glitch with Beta 8. (Ok I'm Beta testing so there's no harm on posting results -- that's what beta testing is for).

After I'm done I'll try and make a composite post with the issues I've found but it's fine to post probs as you find them inacse others have already had the same and can pin point a fix.

If you re-install the boot loader from within beta 8 you lose part of your Operating system options.

I have suse 10.1 on /hg6
suse 10.0 on /hde 4
windows xp on/hde1

running boot loader I lose the suse 10.0 option.

Booting from the Install 10.1 beta 8 cd (cd 1) and selection OTHER at install option then repair system I can re-install the bootloader which repairs it to give me all the OS'es back again.
