I can still access each but it requires booting from a cd if I want to

A short reference is that you need to add a chainloader comand to the installation of grub installed in the MBR. From the installation installed on the secondary drive, you can boot from the rescue disk, chroot /mnt/sysimage and then run grub-install /dev/hdb# to have grub chainload the secondary installation via your first grub menu.

Once the entry is in your primary grub.conf file that chainloads the secondary grub installation, you should be fine thereafter.

For the possible mixed mountpoints, I don't know. My development install (secondary) does not share anything except a swap lvm volume with this FC6 installation. Neither is anything shared from the primary install with the development installation.

FC7 is off to a glibc rollback already, but it still boots.

good luck, you'll get this working on your distros with a few more attempts.
