Re: Triple boot

It will load windows and fedora 5
but it will not load mandriva 2006
if i try to go to mandriva it goes to 
GNU GRUB version 0.97-13mdk {638k lower/522176k upper memory}
[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For
the first word ,tab list possible command
completions. anywhere else tab lists the possible
completions of a device/filename.

I assume this is the Fedora installation on hda9 with hda8 being the
/boot partition for Fedora. The LVM above is contained in hda9. I see
that hda5 through hda7 are Mandriva partitions. I do not know how they
select their partitioning.

If your /home partition is hda7 (26 Gig) and the Mandriva installation
is all contained in hda5,(almost 6 gig) it should be correct.
Make sure that you run grub-install /dev/hda5 from within the Mandriva
installations so there is a grub installed within hda5 for the Fedora
grub loader to chainload. (give over to the other OS to whatever in
contained in the specified partition.) What will happen post
installation is that Mandriva will manage its grub which is chainloaded
from your Fedora installation and Fedora will manage the kernel updates
for its installation.

This sounds like it will work to me.
