    Ubuntu Disappeared - Suggestion required


    Dear Friends,

    I had the os menu as the following in a Dual Booting.

    1. Ubuntu
    2. Windows XP

    I installed Fedora 9 yesterday and Ubuntu Disappeared from the menu. the Boot loader also no Fedora's BL. I thought to install ubuntu again. I am using one modified Ubuntu Security Distro for testing purpose.

    My Question is:

    Shall i install the ubuntu now ? will i get the things corrent ? or any other solutions available in this installation for dual booting ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Fedora Installer doesn't detect other installed Linux distros. You have to add an entry of Ubuntu in Fedora's GRUB.
    Mount Ubuntu's root partition, copy first title block from its boot/grub/menu.lst file and paste in Fedora's /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
    In case you dont know how to do that, execute this in Fedora's Terminal/Konsole :
    Code:
    su -
    /sbin/fdisk -l
    df -h
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
