    Default Add Boot Image

    Hello, I'm inquiring about adding MyahOS to the bootloader. I'm alittle confused on the information that is asked of me when I try to add a section. Pretty much need to know all blanks. =] In MyahOS my drives are listed under /dev/hda in openSUSE its /dev/sda so i dont know which to use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps let openSUSE's Yast work it out. You could back up the old configuration first with this command issued in a console:
    sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.backup
    Then reinitialise Grub so it includes the other OS in a new menu.lst. Open Yast --> System --> Bootloader --> lower right at "Other" --> Propose new configuration --> wait for calculations --> switch tabs to "Bootloader Installation" --> checkmark Master Boot Record and uncheck the root or boot partitions --> try that

    Thanks for the quick reply, but i tried what said and to no avail Any other suggestions? I even mounted the partition that has the image on it first then proposed a new config and it still did not detect it.

    You could try htis:
    Set Myah to put its boot code in the root partition of Myah. Then edit a chainloader entry for Myah into Suse's menu.lst. The chainloader in Suse would point to the Myah root partition.

    all as root
    assuming SuSE is booting
    Mount MyahOS in SuSE; look in it's /boot/grub/menu.lst and copy that boot section

    Paste it in SuSE's /boot/grub/menu.lst
    edit it for the proper partition locations

    umount MyahOS

    (or vice-a-versa depending which bootloader is active)

    reboot
