Re: GRUB Question

Probably the wrong list, but here goes.

I have this working version of fedora 7 on sda, I installed mandriva
2008, for a test drive for the wife, on sdb.  There was not an option
to omit installing the boot loader, I let it install it on  sdb.  The
question, can I make the grub on sda pass control to the grub on sdb?
If so, how?

I know how to boot the beta of fedora 8 that I put on that drive, but
I cannot figure out how to pass control to the sdb boot loader.

Any thoughts, suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Well first read man grub or info grub on your F7 working computer. Learn how to write a section on your existing grub.conf in /boot/grub/ that will boot your F8. It is like the ones you have now but with different root and boot. You can get the right stuff from the F8 grub.conf.
