I wish to add more OS to my dual boot system with suse(sda) and windows7(sda).
The plan is to add Linux Mint(sda), PC BSD(sda), Fedora(sdb) and Solaris(sdb). I wish to remove grub2 from mint and install grub legacy, not sure whether it will work or not. I will be reinstalling grub from suse dvd. It gives me a free hand for adding boot entries.
I wish to know whether I can remove grub2 and install grub legacy. In grub2 all boot related folders are stored in more than 1 place like /boot and /etc and subfolders.
I’m not sure which boot loader is used by what OS here, I would install one OS at a time then sort the boot loader and system.
I’ve allways found a way to easily chainload if needed in the past. I would be inclined to try grub2 as the main boot loader, I assume you are happy to experiment.
I tried that before getting on suse with windows7, solaris and installed buntu 10.04 with grub2. i got a tool but that dang thing is in trial, will get a cr*ck. The other work around is syslinux. Trying to be careful, have spent lot of time customizing my installs and wont like to ruin it for want of Linux Mint.
Other than Linux Mint the other OS use Grub Legacy. Cant think of installing everything at once, its just not possible. I am happy to experiment but I just dont like Grub2, Ubuntu people add lots of new releases for no good reason. Have used chainloaders but GAG or LILO wont work with Grub2.
The Guru’s at Ubuntu call newbies a fool for demanding GUI tools for configuring the Grub2.
