Multiboot with Windows 7 RC, LM KDE 7, and openSuSE 11.1

Postby hawkrives on Wed Aug 19, 2009 1:27 pm

I have a multiboot setup with GRUB and 3 OS, Windows 7 RC 32bit, Linux Mint 7 KDE CE 32bit, and openSuSE 11.1 64bit. The GRUB menu was installed with LM, and I told openSuSE not to install its grub. How do I add openSuSE to my list? Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

copy the opensuse section from it's own /boot/grub/menu.lst and paste it into your mint /boot/grub/menu.lst

Would that file be there if the OP didn't install Grub?

oh, yes, it's just the bootloader itself that wasn't installed. In fact if you're careful you can install the grub bootloader onto *partitions* then you can chainload any you like.
