    I did that, and got an error:

    Code:
    # /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
    
    /dev/hdb1 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive
    How it boots did not change.

    I had exactly the same problems as you descibed. I finally managed to fix my problems using the following tutorial on solving grub-problems:

    http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-19999.html

    I did the following:
    - Create a Grub boot diskette (see section 'Getting a Grub boot diskette')
    - Boot from the floppy
    Then within Grub
    - Find the grub.conf file on your second disk (find /grub/stage1 or find /boot/grub/stage1)
    - Load this grub.conf file (configfile (hd1,0)/grub/grub.conf)
    Check if all works well, then make it permanent on the MBR of your first hard drive
    - setup (hd0) (hd1,0)

    This is how it worked for me. I'm not an expert, so please refer to the tutorial. My example works on my machine (with /boot on the first partition of the second disk)

    Hi All
    Best way -what I feel is use
    "xosl boot loader"-No messup of any operating system.
    Each partition hold their own operating system.No worry about Grup or Lilo.
    Read thro the site info.
    very easy.
