We're almost there, now I get Error 17 which is Cannot mount selected partition. Nerderello says "This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the file system type cannot be recognized by GRUB.
But, I dont see that being possible. It is the same type as SUSE
What I think might be the problem is when i look at my menu.lst file in /boot/grub there is about 4 or 5 blank lines between the Sourcemage entry and the first entry that was originally there. Could this cause a problem, if so ,how do I get rid of this blank spot. I have tried, but I cant figure it out It started out with just 2 or 3, but through my trying to get rid of it, it just got bigger.

Maybe, this is the problem, no hda5 in /etc/fstabCode:
/dev/hda7 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1 /dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=00 02,nls=utf8 0 0 /dev/hda6 swap swap pri=42 0 0

Since you're in Suse, the easiest way to set a mount point, etc. would be in the partitioning tool in YAST.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

The only other problem I can think of is with the vmlinuz file in the stanza I gave it wasCode:
Isn't sourcemage a gentoo like distro? if so there might not be a vmlinuz file, since you compiled the kernel by hand during the install.
I'm not sure whct this file is named, so if there isn't a vmlinuz file in your sourcemage /boot directory, do you mind posting the contesnts here?

This is the SMGL directoryCode:
linux:/mnt/SMGL # ls . bin dev home media proc sbin sys udev var .. boot etc lib mnt root .swapfile tmp usrCode:
linux:/mnt/SMGL/boot # ls . .. grub vmlinubz vmlinubz-126.96.36.199

from all this imformation you should have the stanza for grub like this:title Sourcemage
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinubz-188.8.131.52 root=/dev/hda5title Sourcemage
kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinubz-184.108.40.206 root=/dev/hda5

Well, this problem just took a weird turn. After making those adjustments, I can see the SMGL section in the menu.lst file and in the bootloader Configuration in the Control Center. And I edited the /etc/fstab.
But, the entry is not there when I reboot.
Also, when I look in the /mnt/SMGL file, there are only 2 hidden files, . and ..
So, I am going back to step 1, and redo all the adjustments I made.

Yes, I found it much easier to edit the file from a console using vi. I just used YaST to view the changes I had made.
