If you installed your mandriva bootloader on the MBR of sdb that
points to a /boot partition on sdb#, you can just add a stanza in your
Fedora 7 grub.conf on sda to chainload sdb ... just treat your other
grub like you would a Windows partition (without all the crazy BIOS
drive order swapping and partition hiding needed).
