Mandriva 2006 - option to use Grub?
I would appreciate help with the following please.
I run Fedora core 5 and XP - loaded using Grub from the Fedora system.
I intend to load up Mandriva also to get some experience with it.
I would prefer to keep things simple and not have a setup involving Grub AND Lilo.
Will the installation process give me the option to use Grub? I've been reading up on Mandriva and have seen conflicting statemenets on this.
grub is an option but.......
I tried installing Mandriva this afternoon.
The good news:
It DOES give the choice of Grub or Lilo.
The bad news:
It gives no option (at time of creating the bootloader) to add in other OS.
It failed to detect Fedora (it did detect XP).
The really bad news:
Install hung after creating the bootloader while trying to set up my ethernet card (which works perfectly under XP, Fedora and Suse). This was in the Summary phase. I had to power off to get out of it.
I rebooted to see what I was left with: The Grub loader included Mandriva, Mandriva-fb(?), XP and failsafe.
Booting into XP worked fine.
Booting the other 3 failed trying to set up eth0.
And I thought my problem would be Grub / Lilo !!!!!!
