    you are right if I was trying to configure my menu.lst but I am trying to add Kubuntu to my lilo.conf file. If you read my previous posts, Mandrake over wrote my Kubuntu bootloader so I am trying to add to lilo not GRUB, but thanks for trying to help!

    If I put in the same info without the /dev/hda1, it says no such file or directory.
    the entry is this:

    image=/dev/hda1/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386
    label="kubuntu"
    root=/dev/hda1
    initrd=/dev/hda1/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386

    Thank you!
    Ps/I did mount the drive but had to create an entry in fstab
    I don't think you have quite got it right, since you are stating a /dev/hda1/foo directory, /dev/hda1 is a device, not a directory

    But anyhow, the following should work for kubuntu:

    root = /dev/hda1 #whatever the loction of the kubuntu root partition
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386
    I hope this works for you (btw I'm taking /dev/hda1 as your kubuntu partition, change it if it is not[/code]

    First, thanks for helping me!
    I had already tried the entry as you last suggested (got the error it couldn't find it)
    Below is from my 'Kubuntu' file, maybe this will help sort this out.

    title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5-386
    #:2 <-- type: 0 => linux, 1 => windows, 2 => other
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet splash
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386
    savedefault
    boot

    Erm, what I said [quote]##stanza for kubuntu
    image = /boot/vmlinux-2.6.10-5-386
    label = kubuntu
    root = /dev/hda1
    initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386[/code] should have worked, I take it that you ran
    Code:
    /sbin/lilo
    after the changes?

    Otherwise I can't think of what's wrong =/

    If it still doesn't work you may want to try:
    ##stanza for kubuntu
    image = /boot/vmlinux-2.6.10-5-386
    label = kubuntu
    root = /dev/hda1
    (then run /sbin/lilo)

    the only difference I see is you want me to put "image = /boot/vmlinux-2.6.10-5-386"
    when the actual name of the kernel is "image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386"
    notice we differ on 'z' or using an 'x'

    I have tried both, it can't find either.
    What about the (hd0,0) reference?

    additionally when I choose it at boot time it gives Error 15: File not found
    and say kernel (hd1,4)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386 root=/dev/hda1

    so how to I change the (hd1,4) reference to (hd0,0)

    Thanks!

    What your refering to:

    is the way grub names drives, so these will not help.

    But are you useing grub or lilo? since the error you get reminds me of grub?

    mmm, it seems like I am using GRUB to boot Mandrake?
    GRUBv 0.95

    OH....this makes sense now,

    Ok, in your /boot/grub/grub.conf (may be menu.lst in MDK, i'm not sure)

    Add this:
    title ubuntu
    kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386 root=/dev/hda1
    initrd (hd0,0)/boot/initrd.img-2.6.10-5-386
    to it. And it should work.

    I'm very glad you have it working
    I should have asked at the start if you were using lilo or grub with MDK, I stupidly assumed that you would be useing lilo, which is default with MDK.
