Adding Sabayon to multi-boot GRUB [Solved]

Postby zephyrcat » Sat Aug 11, 2007 3:33

Hi! I just installed Sabayon and told it not to install GRUB, because I already have a working dual boot system set up. I tried to add Sabayon to the menu.lst file, but I can't just do chainloader +2, because there is not boot loader there. (right?) (I tried booting with just title and root and it told me I needed to boot a kernel.) I looked at the automatically set up entries for Ubuntu and they have title, root, kernel, initrd, and then it says quiet and savedefault. I assume I need to add a kernel parameter and a initrd (what ever that means?) parameter to the Sabayon entry, but I am not sure what to put there.

If it is standard, could you tell me what yours says, or is it unique in which case how do you know what it is for you?

Thanks!

Anyone know if that is standard? Obviously I would have to change /dev/sda5, but is there anything else I would need to change?
