Titel: Second Operating System Installation  BeitragVerfasst am: 12.08.2006, 17:57 Uhr

I would like to install another Linux OS using GRUB on my 100 gig drive. I currently have hda1, hda2, hda3 installed. Does the second OS set itself up on the available partitions or do I need to run qtpared and desginate the partitions?
Thanks for the help, David.

You can install the second linux os to whatever partition is free, don't install grub to mbr with the second distro, choose root and add the second linux os to the kanotix /boot/grub/menu.lst manually or chainload it to the menu.lst.

Some distro's don't give you a choice to install to the root of that partition, if that is the case you can use the live kanotix cd and restore your grub and add the second distro manually. It is actually very easy to do, and if you have any questions and aren't sure feel free to ask.

Hi piper, I have two OS now loaded onto my 100 gig drive. How can I setup a menu to select which OS I want to boot up first. Thanks, David.

To edit grub menu.lst is really easy, this is how mine looked as a single OS installed

____________________________________________________
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.16.16-kanotix-1 Default
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 ro ramdisk_size=100000 lang=us apm=power-off nomce vga=791
initrd /boot/initrd.img
boot

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.16.16-kanotix-1
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16.16-kanotix-1 root=/dev/hda1 ro ramdisk_size=100000 lang=us apm=power-off nomce vga=791
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.16.16-kanotix-1
boot
____________________________________________________

Then all i did was copy and paste it so i had it duplicated and made changes to the duplicated lis as follows

title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.16.16-kanotix-1
to read
title "whatever you want"

root (hd0,0)
to read
root (hd0,6) as "6" is the number of where my hda7 is

and also change

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16.16-kanotix-1 root=/dev/hda1 ro
to read
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda7 ro

as hda7 is the second OS

You may need to alter your fstab too so the the original install can mount the second OS partition (if you want it to) if the second OS was reformated to a different file system post install of the original install

What you could do is boot up with the Kanotix cd and go to the Kanotix-Installer (The installer is started from the "fishbutton") then check the Recover existing Kanotix-HD-Installation box and reinstall grub to the MBR then reboot into Kanotix and open konqueror --> /boot/grub and right click on menu.lst --> actions --> edit as root and add "your distro" to your grub.


These are examples of what you can do, just remember to change it so it matches the partition that "your distro" is installed to.

title Your Distro [/boot/vmlinuz26]
root (hd0,10)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda11 ro
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.15-your distro.img

or

title Your distro
chainloader (hd0,11)+1
