Description of problem:
Did a GUI CD install of Hampton on a machine which had a Red Hat 6.2
installation (/dev/hda1 swap, /dev/hda5 /).
Partitionned the drive by adding a /dev/hda6 for the new /, leaving the 6.2
In the bootloader screen (grub selected), only /dev/hda6 was present as a boot
partition. I saw no button to add a new partition, nor did the /dev/hda5
partition get recognized as a valid boot partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reproduce the above
Actual Results: Grub only boots from the Hampton partition.
Expected Results: 2 entries menu: original 6.2 and new 7.3 beta
This is part of the new bootloader framework which isn't getting done for Hampton
You can add new partitions to chainload again in CVS
