[PROBLEM] FC3 and Grub installation



Please refer to this bugzilla bug:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=137789

Although the developer/maintainer is convinced that
this is no bug, I am afraid this is not so. (I am
sorry Jeremy.)

Here is the procedure I follow:
1. Install FC2 (yes, FC2) on /dev/hda1 and choose to
install Grub on MBR (/dev/hda)
2. Install the shiny new FC3 on /dev/hda2 (in my case
it was on /dev/hda16) and choose to install grub on
the first sector of /dev/hda2 rather than on MBR.
(Please ask me 'why', if you want to, but I am
convinced I am doing nothing wrong in this step.)
3. Configure FC2's grub to chain load FC3's grub.
4. And observe it does not work.

Could somebody tell me what am I doing wrong here?

And has anybody else seen this behaviour?

(I swear to God that I have followed this procedure
from the days of RH 6.0, SuSE 7.0, Debian 2 etc. and
never had a problem until FC3.)

Thank you.
Hari.
