    Yes, when you install the new distro. Install the bootloader to the root partition..

    Then you will edit your menu.lst file and add an entry for the new distro.

    For more info on this subject, do a search on this site for "multi-boot".

    When you install a new distro. If you put the new grub on the MBR, what ever was there will be overwritten.

    Not sure what kind of example you are looking for, but.....
    When I install a new distro, I put the bootloader on the root partition.
    And then I edit my menu.lst to put a new entry in.

    The only time I didn't follow this was when I installed Suse 9.3. I installed over Suse 9.2 and installed Suse 9.3 Grub to the MBR.

    Hmmm, I sense a certain moderator is going to lock this thread and direct it somewhere else as we are way off-topic.
