    Question multiboot question

    Hello all,

    I have a question regarding multiboot on a PC.
    I have a system with multiple images on it.
    Also I wanna install an openSUSE on that system on a different hdd.

    I need to know if I can install the openSUSE without disturbing the other OSs.I mean after I install openSUSE can I restore the images and run Windows without problems or after a windows restore the GRUB is alterated and cannot be restored.

    Thanks,
    Ionut

    You can prevent the installer installing the bootloader. You can then edit your current grub and add an entry manually for your SUSE install.

    eg:

    title openSUSE 11.1
    root (hd0,7)
    configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst

    That is just an example of course
    You would need to use the correct entry for your partitions
    In my example it's hd0,7

    Yours might hd0,5

    or hd1,2
