I use ubuntu 6.06 as my primary linux system and like to try other linux
systems. At the moment I have 5 other linux systems that I can boot
with ubuntu's grub.
ubuntu was installed last so it's grub captured all the other systems
making it possible to boot any of them with ubuntu's grub from computer
The problem is when I install another linux system, it's grub becomes
the active booter but it doesn't always include all of the the other
systems so ubuntu may become inaccessible.. If it could be, it's a
simple matter of running 'grub-install /dev/hda' and adding the new
system's booter to ubuntu's grub menu.lst.
Otherwise, I have to reinstall ubuntu and let it capture the new
linux in grub.
I figure if I could access ubuntu with a boot floppy, I could do the
grub-install /dev/hda routine and edit menu.list to include the newly
The question boils down to simply------how do I make a boot floppy (or
CD) to boot ubuntu after I install a new linux system?
