    hate to be a gravedigger but...


    I am working on trying to dual boot Fc 10 and Ubuntu 9.04. have followed everything I could find - including trying to mount Ubuntu into fedora - for a while I was getting an error 13, now I am back to an error 17, pretty sure that was because I put the wrong partition in the grub.conf file any suggestions?

    disregard sdb - thumb drive, I installed Ubuntu 1st, then Fc 10 - probably some dumb mistake that I cant pin down. Thanx

    Ubuntu has been installed in first partition of the Hard disk and partition numbers start from 0 instead of 1.

    Got it removed the "chainloader +1" command from menu.lst after the ubuntu kernel information, and all seems to work fine now.

    chainload is for non-linux OSes only and it was indeed creating problems. Glad that you have sorted out problem.
