    Mandriva 2007 + suse 10.2 + Xp


    Hi everybody,
    I am presently using suse 10.2 dual boot with XP (gotta use it due to certain work software).
    Wot I want to know is if I install Mandriva as a 3rd system will it keep the other 2 in the grub loader as I have tried this before with ubuntu and lost access to everything else, nothing I did would restore them to grub and I had to do a clean install.

    yes it will keep other 2 OS in GRUB.
    other option is, install GRUB in boot sector of / (root) partition during Mandriva Installation and add chainloading code in menu.lst file of SuSe.
    i assume that you are going to install Mandriva in hda7.
    add this code in menu.lst file of SuSe
    Code:
    title Mandriva
    rootnoverify (hd0,6)
    chainloader +1
    save file. start Mandriva installation and select boot sector of hda7 (/dev/hda7) for GRUB in Boot Loader section during installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
