Why not?
I don't see anything special about your setup.
Most people just have one grub.conf and this seems to work fine.




    It works fine if you are not getting upgraded kernel's. I prefer to
use this method because it is open ended. I can add more systems easy.

What the hell are you driveling on about?


With great caution I agree with Karl here !!!!

It is neater to use chainloader +1 if you have several different installs

When you update the "chained" kernel the "chained" grub.conf is updated automatically.
On one machine I have a "production" F7 and "development" F7 and F8s

I do not have to play with grub.conf on /dev/sda1

title F7 pagham (2.6.23.1-10.fc7)
    root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.23.1-10.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/root_pagham initrd /initrd-2.6.23.1-10.fc7.img

title F7 Indirect boot of harddisk
    root (hd0,4)
    chainloader +1
title F8 Indirect boot of fuerte
    root (hd0,5)
chainloader +1

   Thanks John, I may have learned the method from one of your messages :-)
All I said ws I use it and it works fine.

Maybe it's not politically correct but I am using the oldish Boot Manager from IBM and let it boot whatever OS I have on my system. All OSes are completely isolated from one another, so I don't see these grub/kernel problems at all.
