Grub1 and Grub2: openSUSE and Ubuntu 10.04
I have finally got rid of dualbooting Vista and replaced Vista with Ubuntu 10.04 beta for a peek at the competition while waiting for openSUSE 11.3. The previous set-up was that I used EasyBCD to load openSUSE from its own hard drive (sdc), and I also still have 11.1 on sdb, while Vista lived on sda.
Now what I did was simply to install Ubuntu on sda to replace Vista and all worked fine. Ubuntu's Grub2 picked up the SUSE installation fine, but it's very ugly and visually very untidy when booting SUSE, still my default boot, so I decided to use YaST to edit the SUSE Grub, add Ubuntu to it (using swerdna's symlinks method), and tell YaST to write the bootloader to sda.
That didn't work, as the next reboot still picked up Ubuntu's Grub2 menu. How do I move grub1 from the boot partition of sdc to the MBR on sda, replacing Grub2, i.e. boot Ubuntu from SUSE's bootloader menu?
