I tried this with 5.3 installed from CoreCDX but ran into a problem when I got to this step:

nebster wrote:9- Finally, add it to grub.conf. Open it up and add:
Code: Select all
TITLE Sabayon Installer
  rootnoverify (Drive,Partition)
  chainloader +1


GRUB itself is a different version (0.97 for this procedure vs. 1.98 for the CoreCDX of 5.3)
There was no grub.conf to be found, instead it is grub.cfg and appears to have a different format for each menu entry:

Code: Select all
menuentry "Sabayon GNU/Linux, with Linux x86-2.6.34-sabayon" --class sabayon --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
   insmod ext2
   set root='(hd0,1)'
   search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX
   echo   Loading Linux x86-2.6.34-sabayon ...
   linux   /kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.34-sabayon ro init=/linuxrc splash=verbose,theme:sabayon vga=791 console=tty1 quiet resume=swap:/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol01 real_resume=/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol01 dolvm root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/mapper/vg_spamzillastudios-lv_root docrypt
   echo   Loading initial ramdisk ...
   initrd   /initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.34-sabayon
}


I'm not sure how to make the old GRUB commands work with this newer GRUB bootloader. Furthermore, when I tried running these commands from the older GRUB 0.97 command line, nothing happened!

Code: Select all
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1



All I could get it to do is tell me when I entered a wrong partition or bad executable format.

I'm using unetbootin now.

Much easier than the old manual method.

Their web page is pretty self explanatory:

http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

Usually, I just use the "Disk Image" option to select my image file by using the file dialog.
