Re: f10dvd installs but won't boot



newest info: f10 appears to quit when starting X server, see below


I had modified f10 grub.conf to have 3 stanzas

1  f10 orig  rhgb quiet
2  f10  norhgbquiet
3  fc5 chainloader
 
But, had to hit esc while booting to see my 3 stanzas
ie I dont get presented with this list unless i hit esc
so there is more here I dont understand

----from f10 grub.conf
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=0
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=449a78aa-d4d5-4e
91-bf9c-5833d7218c8f rhgb quiet scsi_mod.scan=sync
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686.img



title Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686) norhgbquiet
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 ro root=UUID=449a78aa-d4d5-4e
91-bf9c-5833d7218c8f scsi_mod.scan=sync
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686.img


title fc5copy hd1,5 chainloader
root (hd1,5)
chainloader +1
------ end f10 grub.conf
this last enables me to boot back into fc5  without using knoppix cd
but I can see this list only using esc



selecting the norhgbquiet stanza
gives me a  long list of boot msgs, lasting longer than seen before
and it appears to quit
starting X server

screen then goes blank

does this help narrow down what is wrong?
