The problem indeed comes with the new setup which has to
include OS/2 Warp and its Bootmanager !
A simple setup with these 3 OS'es already worked without problems
where GRUB was in Ubuntu 7.10's partition and integrated in OS/2
Bootmanager too !! ;-D
The problem now is more the intended setup with one more Ubuntu
Additional to the first PROD-uctive single Ubuntu setup I plan a TEST
second Ubuntu and
as Linux newbie I have no experience and fond knowledge how to setup
best !!! ;-|
Any more hints and suggestions ?
Au revoir and cheers, svobi
