Dual booting fc5 & fc6



Many thanks to Jim, Robert and Nigel. When I installed fc6 I got
/1/boot/....I thought my selection at that point would auto-magically
put fc6 in my selections at boot time. It seemed to go just like that
when I dual booted RH8 and NT, but I guess much has changed since
then. I intended to eliminate the last fc5 under the "chainload + 1"
but you guys are a bit over my head here and I had no idea you could
install grub more than once...not that I want to yet. /dev/hda1 is
where I have fc5, /dev/hda2 is a swap, /dev/hda3 is where fc6 is and
has no mount point according to the LVM, /dev/hda4 is an extended
partition ? I did not ask for that(110G), then /dev/hda5 is swap, then
it says I have 110G of unpartitioned and uninitialized space on hda. I
thought the partitioning possibilities were a bit confusing; but then,
I find many things confusing. Below is my fc5 grub config. I know you
guys are busy and don't always have time to hold someone's hand, but I
really appreciate your help.
