Ok, here's the story, I'm trying to make my laptop triple boot.
I've got a successful double boot working Ubuntu + Windows, But I'm wanting to boot a third distro.(Backtrack 3 Specifically - SLAX based)
I've tried creating an extra 2 partitions (one for root and one for =/changes)
However no matter what I try I'm having problems getting the grub to boot the new distro.
Here is an output of fdisk -lu
at the moment I dont have my extra 2 partitions on there, but I'm not sure why currently its showing 1/2/5/6 as far as i know there is only 3 active partitions. they are NTFS - Windows, Linux Swap and Linux for ubuntu.
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc701c701
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 63 104711669 52355803+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 104711670 312576704 103932517+ 5 Extended

/dev/sda6 308078568 312576704 2249068+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Also, when stopping on teh grub menu and trying to use the geometry command, i get the following error
I only have 1 HD so I'm assuming its HD0 ?
Error 21: Selected disk does not exist
Please advise, I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1300 with a 160gb Drive.
