I'm sure there's a simple explanation to this, and hopefully someone can enlighten me.
I'm attempting to run a triple boot configuration on a MacBook Pro using rEFIt. My current partition setup is as follows
/dev/sda1 - This is a FAT32 partition that OS X and or GPT uses so it has to stay
/dev/sda2 - OS X
/dev/sda3 - Windows XP
/dev/sda4 - FAT32 partition to be shared between the OSes. Since XP can't see more than 4 GPT partitions it has to be sda4
/dev/sda5 - Linux
/dev/sda6 - Swap
I get through the whole installation and when it gets to installing grub it says quits with a fatal error saying it couldn't install grub on /dev/sda5. Is this possibly a limitation within grub that won't let it install? If so, would installing grub on /dev/sda1 be a safe option? I could install it on the windows partition, but that defeats the purpose of using rEFIt as the boot loader.
