    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Right now when I boot, GRUB shows up from Ubuntu, and offers the two choices of Ubuntu and Windows XP.

    As for the Fedora install, I could install it using the first two CDs only (no GRUB), and then when it asked me to reboot, I couldn't boot into Fedora since it isn't showing up in the choices. Can I modify Ubuntu's GRUB to make it detect Fedora?

    Thanks.

    yes. you have to add an entry of Fedora in Ubuntu's GRUB.
    mount /boot partition of Fedora and post the filenames stored in it.
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    note down Fedora's partition number.
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/fedora
    sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/<partition_no> /media/fedora
    ls /media/fedora
    post output here. post the output of 'sudo fdisk -l' command too.

    I tried the install all over again. I was wrong that it requires the 4th CD to install the GRUB loader. It did it with the first 2 CDs only. Now I have Fedora up and runnning! Sorry for the mistake, but I learnt quite a bit in this process.

    Thanks for all the help!
