    Install GRUB through Knoppix?


    I'm trying to re-do GRUB because it only recognizes suse 10 and windows, not my pclinuxos. How do I do this in knoppix, or is there a different easy way to do it? Thanks.

    Re-doing grub can mean to reconfigure or install again. I gather you mean to reinstall. In that case do the following:

    Mount the partition (provide the correct HD notation for hdax):
    # mount -o dev,rw /mnt/hdax

    If it's already mounted, remount it like this:
    # mount -o remount,dev,rw /mnt/hdax

    Now, restore grub like this:
    # chroot /mnt/hda1 grub-install /dev/hda

    If the chroot method doesn't work, try remounting as outlined above and do:
    # grub-install -root-directory=/mnt/hda1 /dev/hda
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding your question, but it sounds like you are wanting to add PCLinuxOS to your grub menu. Is that correct?

    If so, just edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to include your pclinuxos distribution. You can use your Suse entry as a working example of how the entry should look, but you have to modify that to fit the partitions/kernel used by pclinuxos.

    Hope that made sense.
