How to add to grub?




I installed F-10 on this computer but in creating grub the installer ignored the existing F-8 on drive /dev/sda. I thought it would present me with a grub screen for selection of the other system but it didn't happen. I don't actually need or want F8 but if I can make it work, since it is already there, then I should be able to replace it with F0 or even Centos. I have a genealogy program [Ftree] that seg faults with F-10 on both computers.

I began making a modified grub but when I got down to the last section I find that the F8 drive contains no /boot/vmlinuz - ****. It does however contain kernel rpm files in the yum cache.
Can someone tell me how to procede?  Suggestions, forget it maybe?

   I added a line to fstab so that I can see the files on the 80g drive
   /dev/sda.
