Installer Issues via Installer -- Not for global upgrades or upgrading individual packages -- ONLY ISSUES WITH INSTALLATION OF THE OS -- Can't get Sabayon installed, than post here, otherwise use correct forums
Just installed Sabayon 6 and all works well if I boot from Grub 2.
However I dislike grub2 and already have several other linux systems and FreeBSD installed.
My preferred Bootloader is Grub legacy.
When I try and boot Sabayon 6 using grub legacy I get
Grub Error 17 (I believe this is partition corrupt or not recognised)
Here is my grub stanza:
title Sabayon 6
kernel (hd1,6)/boot/vmlinuz ro root=UUID=c0c91c66-07a9-4693-93b2-5398a638740c quiet splash
ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Sep 24 11:43 c0c91c66-07a9-4693-93b2-5398a638740c -> ../../sdb7
Its installed as two partitions:
/ on /dev/sdb7
/home on /dev/sdb8
If I mount the Sabayon root partition from an alternate linux system I have already created appropriate symlinks to the Sabayon kernel and initramfs:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1 Sep 18 15:06 boot -> ./
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4898 Sep 18 16:13 grub/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12079581 Sep 18 16:13 initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-sabayon
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 38 Sep 18 15:19 initrd.img -> initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-sabayon
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4556112 Aug 3 23:13 kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-sabayon
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2215646 Aug 3 23:13 System.map-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-sabayon
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 Sep 18 15:19 vmlinuz -> kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.39-sabayon
Can anyone see what is wrong with my grub stanza, or why it fails to boot?
I can provide the full menu.lst if required.
Thanks in advance.

1. Please see:http://www.linuxselfhelp.com/gnu/grub/html_chapter/grub_13.html
2. To help we need more details; I installed multiboot systems with Grub legacy as well as with so called Grub2.
If you have a Linux with Grub legacy in the MBR, do you use "chainload"? Please post that part (2 - 3 lines) of the menu.lst
Part of my menu.lst - openSUSE with Grub1 in MBR, SL with Grub2 in PBR=sda8 -:
title Sabayon 64 bit
