    Hi Casper,

    I tried your first approach and it is now working. I added the lines above and now can boot Fedora 12 too in the Grub.

    1) Mount / partition of Fedora 12, copy first title block (title, kernel and root lines) from its grub.conf file and paste in menu.lst file of Mint.
    Thank you very much!

    Second option should work too. I am chainloading all distros in my test machine and none has had problem.
    Did second option work?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Ooopss. Sorry, I had to unmark. I didn't know you were online.

    Anyway, the 2nd option did not work for me. There would be another menu after I click on the Fedora in Mint Grub and when I click on Fedora 12 again on the 2nd Menu, nothing happens.

    I just experimented on doing the first and was happy to see it work. I just hope there will be no problems in kernel updates later.

    There won't be any problem on kernel updates. You will have to edit Mint's menu.lst file and add an entry for new kernel only.

    I will look into second option again. I think we are missing something here.

    This would be the best really. Hope we can also make it work so that I don't have to edit Mint 7 Grub after every update
