Description Mike McLean 2002-11-27 21:17:08 UTC
* -re1127.nightly
* English / NFS / GUI

Testing out a dual boot scenario w/ RH7.2.  This installation is certainly
detected because I was asked if I wanted to upgrade it (I did not), but it does
not show up automatically in the grub configuration screen.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-05 20:53:59 UTC
This is intentional.  We don't support dual-booting of multiple Linux
installations -- if you install the second boot loader into the partiiton,
chainloading it will work, but anything else is much too complicated to get all
of the variables right (we don't know enough about the other installs)

Time tracking values updated

Can't anaconda detect that GRUB is in use for booting, then locate its conf 
file and use it as a base for the new conf file ?

The idea is to preserve all the old boot menu entries and add a new one for the 
current install.
