Re: grub 2: "error: You need to load the kernel first"



And, you can try installing the fedora grub-0.97-51, which means you are
overwriting the ubuntu grub 2. It should work, as it's only used for
booting, but grub 2 is also little new to me. You got yourself a
interesting problem :)

Greetings,
Jim.
