Re: dual-boot attempt (crossposted to both fedora and kubuntu lists)

Greetings.

I am trying to make a dual boot with FC5 and Kubunut 6.06.1

I installed FC 5 first on hda1, and it was good.
then installed Kubunut on hda2, booted into kubu, and all seemed good, too.
But then, attempt to reboot did not give me access to Fedora.
So I edited /grug/menu.lst, and attempted to reboot, found the fedora
entry and tried to boot it, and got a kernel panic.
So I reinstalled the FC5, and, looked good, again (oddly, it seems to
have just
repaired the previous install, because what little data I had on the
drive, and settings like wallpaper, were still in place)
...But now I can´t boot kubuntu...
Grub only has an empty entry for Kubu (no kernel and init paramanters,
etc).
So I mounted the kubu partition, cd-ed to /boot therein, and find
nothing in there.
It appears that when installing Fedora, it hosed the /boot of the kubu
install when I told grub to include kubu.

What do I have to do to get these two to play nice?

Well I have FC5, FC6T3, Ubuntu & Windows all playing fairly nice, so you
know it's possible.The easiest way I find to do this is to boot normally (it doesn't make
any difference if it is into FC or Ubuntu) edit the grub.conf (or
grub.menu if Ubuntu) tell Grub to boot to the other system the same way
you tell it to dual boot windows.
I did my system working, doing something similar to what you advise.
But I wanted to note...I haven´t the slightest idea how one does a dual boot with windows, nor do I care to know.
I gave up that mess 7 years ago and haven´t looked back.

I do know that dualbooting to windows is a breeze when intalling FC becuase it sees the other OS while you re intsalling and simply offers you the option to add it to Grub, and then sort of does it for you automagically. for some reason it didn´t do that with Kubuntu, but Kubuntu did do it
after several attempts...
