I decided to trash the Ubuntu installation on my laptop and install a
couple of oses multi booting. I was pleasantly surprised that Ubuntu's
grub picked up most of them except for one. The Xandros will not boot, i
get a insert correct root=boot option error.
This is in my grub config.

title Xandros_Desktop_3.0.1_OC (on /dev/hda5)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 ro rw acpi=on
The /dev/hda5 is correct so i don't know whats wrong.
Anyway i will remember to always install Ubuntu last as it has a
fantastic way off picking up most multi boot options unlike some others
i have played with.
