    booting mandrake with red hat


    Hello,
    I am facing a problem
    initially,i had redhat and windows on my dual-boot machine.
    after that ,i installed mandrake in a NEW partition,and NOW ,before booting,the mandrake graphical loader displays only the following options -
    1.Linux
    2.Linux(non fb)
    3.failsafe
    4windows
    5.floppy
    So, i can't access red-hat os anymore now although its still present (unmodified ) on the disk.
    Could somebody tell me as to how to include "Red-hat Linux " in the boot -menu(alongwith ,of course,mandrake and windows)?

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE 2 LINUX OS TOGETHER??

    Yes, I've had as many as 6 running on the same harddrive before. It involves configuring your bootloader to recognize each individual Linux installation. However, since I've never had any luck with Mandrake I can't really help you with this problem. I just thought I'd answer your question anyway.

    If your using mdk10.1 then I played a little with the bootloader...

    In the configuration panel, you have the bootloader part.

    You can add/modify/delete the existing configuration. you need to specify the location in which you want to add another "option"(bootstrap of RedH)
