View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing a second Ubuntu

May 20th, 2008, 07:27 PM
I made a second instance of Ubuntu on a logical partition. No big deal to do, but now I have an issue. I tweaked my original Grub a good deal, so I opted to not reinstall Grub with the new installation. Now I am not sure how to add the new installation to the existing Grub list.


P.S. The first Ubuntu is 8.04 32-bit, and the second, newer one, is 8.04 64-bit. Both are using their respective default kernels.

Solved: I found this site. (http://users.bigpond.net.au/hermanzone/p15.htm#menu.lst)Ok, I am a bit dense today apparently. I had this saved in my favorites folder (it is looking full... I should trim it) back when I was learning about Grub splash imagery and modification.
