XP, centOS and Fedora, on the same system??
m having xp and Centos installed in a system, and want to install fedora as well
if i install it, will the fedora Grub overwrite the centOS grub and xp boot loader, if yes, then how to avoid it and make all three OS's bootable..
Fedora installer will detect Windows OS and setup dual boot but you have to add CentOS entry in its conf file manually.
Two ways :
* Let Fedora installer install grub. Boot up Fedora, mount / partition of CentOS and open its /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Copy first title block ( title, root, kernel and initrd lines ) and paste in Fedora's /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
* Install Fedora's GRUB in Boot Sector of its root partition instead of its default location, MBR. Boot up CentOS and add chainload code for Fedora in /boot/grub/grub.conf file of CentOS.
Do not worry about Windows XP. Fedora installer detect it and configure it correct. Problem is, Fedora installer doesn't detect Linux distros.
Its a Fedora Installer problem only. Installers of all other distros detect other installed Linux distros but only Fedora Installer is an exception. I don't know why Fedora Dev Team haven't sorted out this problem yet.
