    did i just lose my other OS???

    I have gparted on my system and i have opensolaris running in one partition. I loaded Suse on another partition but now I don get my grub menu so i can select my boot image.

    How can i get back to my opensolaris to put suse in the grub menu?

    I also plan on loading redhat on this system.

    HELP...

    i booted from y gparted cd and the partitions are still there. Now the question is how to get back to a boot option on them...

    So I booted into safe mode and i notice grub is used here too. I am guessing i have to change the menu.lst file. But what if I want to use my opensolaris grub menu? How do I not make suse the default boot/grub loader?

    I tired this in the menu.lst but it gave an error

    title Boot OpenSolaris
    rootnotify (hd0)
    chainloader +1

    This is what my solaris menu.lst had in it. However it wont boot.

    What does your grub.conf say? You set the default OS to boot with the "default" parameter. A value of "0" will select the first, "1" will set the second, "2" will set the third and so on. Here is known working example I found on the Web.

    Code:
     
    default=0
    timeout=10
    splashimage=(hd1,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2174.nptl)
        root (hd1,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2174.nptl.img
    title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2149.nptl)
        root (hd1,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2149.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2149.nptl.img
    title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2129.nptl)
        root (hd1,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2129.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2129.nptl.img
    title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
        root (hd1,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img
    title Windows XP
        rootnoverify (hd0,2)
        chainloader +1
    title BEOS
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1
    Your config below may have an error according to this link. It should look like this:

    Code:
    title Solaris
            rootnoverify (hd0,2)
            makeactive
            chainloader +1
    Have you tried running grub-install or grub afterwards? Are you sure you are specifying the correct partitions in grub.conf?
