Re: Grub and two distros



when i install fedora 10 on this box, already a quad boot, f10 thought it was
only system. when i selected to install a start for another install, it did
so. but true to form, it did not work. so i manually edited grub.conf and
set it up as i wanted and anaconda has never been able to do.
