I apologize if this query has come up previously. Feel free to direct me to those threads if appropriate. I have XP and Mint on my tower, dual booting using Grub, everything works nice.
I would like to install another distro onto a USB thumbdrive (CrunchBang, which has an install function as part of the Live CD.
My question is, when installing the new distro to the USB thumbdrive all goes well and I instruct it to put Grub on the thumbdrive (so as not to interfere with the Grub setup on my internal hard drive).
When I reboot the USB drive isn't included in the boot options under Grub.
What do I need to do? Should I tell the new distro to install Grub on top of the Grub install that is already in place with my XP Mint setup?
It's confusing and rather than experiment and corrupt my current HD setup, I thought I would ask for expert input.
Thanks very much!
