    Red face Another OS why not? Boot Error

    Okay I'll make my actions clear as I can at this hour.
    I extended my Windows 7 partition
    I lost Windows 7 (another forum)
    Then I made space for Debian and installed it.
    Then I installed OpenSUSE over it.
    Then I reinstalled Ubuntu.
    Now I have Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, and Vista on the computer hard drive.
    I can boot into Ubuntu and Vista, but I can't boot into OpenSUSE. I get this error: Boot splash states on console 0 change to on "Failed" (repair file system) #

    I can only assume that since I installed Ubuntu it moved OpenSUSE and when it boots it doesn't know where it got moved? If I attempt to boot OpenSUSE I get a load screen but about halfway I get the error and I'm restarted back to the Grub boot loader. I think I'ma stop after install 7 (Windows Seven that is) again at 4 OS.

    Before evrybody asks for the information I advice you to add the output of
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    and
    Code:
    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
    so that the gurus have something to look at.

    okay it's different now....
    I redid EVERYTHING and now I have Vista to 7 to Ubuntu on the hard drive in that order. My Ubuntu partition is about 80gb so I was thinking of spliting in half and installing OpenSUSE on that 40gb. How could I install it without losing the ability to boot into Ubuntu. I know for a fact I can't split or shrink it on Windows so I'm not gonna try doing that because Windows won't let me do more then 4 partition.

    Last time I installed Open after Ubuntu I couldn't boot into Ubuntu. I'm sure it's cus I set up the partition as (/ ). How do I install the os so it'll boot and Ubuntu will boot. Note I got easyBCD on Vista so it's a option as well.
