Re: GRUB install question for HURD

Well you have two options that will work.
1) You could edit your existing menu.lst file (I see that you are dual
booting) with the correct information to boot GNU, or
b. You could copy an existing ~/grub directory into your GNU /boot
directory (as you suggested) and then boot via the chainloader +1
command in your existing grub (your existing menu.lst file would need to
have an entry for GNU added as well you will need to activate grub on
your GNU install).

If you do not know how to utilize the chainloader +1 command or how to
activate grub on your GNU partition, post a query.  Let us know how you
make out.

thanks Teague. i just booted HURD through the GRUB installed on Arch :-)

to provide some help to some other newbie in future, i am posting my
"/boot/grub/menu.lst" file from Arch LiGnux (well, that is my
invention ->  LiGnux ;-)
