    Default Dual-boot with other Linux?

    Hi

    I would like to install OpenSUSE 11.0 from the KDE-liveCD, but I already have two OS'es on my computer: Windows XP and Kubuntu 8.04.
    I have 30GB empty (logical) ext3-partition between my windows-partitions (3 partitions) and my Kubuntu ones (Ext3 root and swap).
    Now here's the question, has the CD-installer a bootloader option and what's the best, let SUSE have the MBR (and will it find windows AND kubuntu and add it to the menu) or install SUSE grub onto the same partition as SUSE itself and let the Kubunyu-grub chainload to it?

    Regards

    I have a dual boot of Opensuse 11 and Vista.. I let GRUB look after the booting that is:

    "let SUSE have the MBR (and will it find windows AND kubuntu"

    I have to add them manually to /boot/grub/menu.lst with the entry:

    Windows Vista
    chainloader (hd0,0)+1


    though some people report that it picks them up automatically. Just make sure you install
    the other OS's first

    Thanks! So: let SUSE install grub into its own partition, and let the Kubuntu grub chainload to it?
