Systems. It requires a database to keep track of what’s on all of them.

What situation? Wild Goose started this thread. Why is it you seem to be
trying to help me instead of Wild Goose?

What’s your point? I have more than 30 multiboot systems, meaning systems
each with more than one installed operating system. Most here have well over
half a dozen, some more than 30, very few with as few as three.

You tell me! On most installations here, booting begins from a Grub
installation that is on neither
IOW, I first install Grub to a primary partition that gets mounted neither to
any / nor to any /boot, regardless the location of the kernel and initrd I
choose to load at boot time. In addition, each distro installation gets a
Grub installed, so that it can be chainloaded to instead of relying on my
master Grub installation and complicating it with multiple stanza for each
installed system. The master is complicated enough with one for each
installation, plus stanzas for initiating installation of various distros,
and various memtest versions.
> And, there is only -one- (or a single) menu.lst that will be read at
Unless you use one to chainload another, or a third, or more.
Again, why me? If you want a conversation with me, you should do it
elsewhere, not in Wild Goose’s thread, or at least, change to a different
topic to distinguish it from his problem.
