    Default Can't I have triple boot: Windows, Leopard and OpenSuse 11?

    Hi people,

    After using Ubuntu for a year I decided to leave it due to problems with my Asus F3JC laptop (fans running as if it were trying to fly, laptop too hot and battery life shorter compared to windows!), so I decided to try OpenSuse 11.

    Once you install Leopard, no matter what linux distro you use but you have to add the leopard entries to grub in other to be able to boot Leopard because grub doesnt take the leopard entry automatically so you have to do it manually. I did it in Ubuntu and it worked. But know in OpenSuse it doesnt
    As I didnt change the partition scheme neither the sort or partitions size I just replace some of the content of the OpenSuse grub by the old one and I still can boot OpenSuse and Windows, but I cant boot leopard it gives me some kind of hfs+ error.

    Is it because Ubuntus grub and SUses grub are different??

    On the other hand I would like to ask you something:
    As the servers were collapsed I downloaded OpenSuse 11 through rapidshare.com. It includes Amarok, but not Banshee (I thought OpenSue 11 was going to use Banshee and not Amarok). Do I have a beta???

    Thanks people!

    I don't think it installs automatically unless you use Gnome as your
    desktop. Go to YAST, Software Management, and enter banshee as a search
    term and you'll see all the Banshee ready to install.

    I would suggest to use a separate boot manager, especially if you want this as a fixed setup.
    It will make boot life much easier and also gives you more control of presented partition layout keeping system partitions hidden between os'es.
