sda6= Jaunty ext3 grub legacy.
sda7= Karmic ext4 grub2 on sda's mbr.
All os's boot and all partitions mount. From the start Jaunty's boot time increased to around 35 seconds. Ran bootchart on Jaunty to see where the bottleneck was; attached to post (right-click/save image as).

How could an install increase another distro's boot time? I know I shouldn't complain but it seems kind of odd.
