    you can just copy paste those lines into the grub that you do use I believe. What grub do you use?

    Hi JMadero...

    I used openSuSE GRUB.

    I got it by adding 'root (hd3,0) to the entry:

    title Upgrade to Fedora 10 (Cambridge)
    root (hd3,0)
    kernel /boot/upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade stage2=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/install.img ks=hd:UUID=cc9cedeb-1f14-4cf7-8b4e-ce05acd8c4e7:/boot/upgrade/ks.cfg
    initrd /boot/upgrade/initrd.img

    /thread!!!


    I need to thank myself.
