In my f8 grub.conf I have the following lines (only relevant ones listed):

title Fedora (2.6.23.15-137.fc8)
        root (hd0,4)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.15-137.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.15-137.fc8.img
title F9 Rawhide
        root (hd0,7)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9.img

The first set allow me to boot directly into F8... the second set I thought would
boot into rawhide - but won't.  I also tried changing the LABEL=/1 into
LABEL=/ with the same effect.

The /boot directory in the rawhide partition contains:

[root lapmike1 ~]# ls /mnt/tmp/boot/
total 5700
  88 config-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9  2616 initrd-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9.img
   4 efi/                              892 System.map-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9
   4 grub/                            2096 vmlinuz-2.6.25-0.69.rc3.git1.fc9

Also the /boot/grub directory in the rawhide partition contains only:
[root lapmike1 ~]# ls /mnt/tmp/boot/grub/
total 8
8 splash.xpm.gz

Should I have stage1 and stage2 files etc in this directory?

Can you suggest what I may be able to do to get rawhide in this situation to 
boot?

Am I missing some files in /boot/grub?

Thanks
