Here are the step I followed to install two distributions of Linux:
- Install the first distribution normally with GRUB in the MBR.
- While installing the second distribution make sure to set GRUB in its root partition.
- At this point the second distribution should not be available in GRUB Boot loader, login in the first distribution as root and edit /etc/grub.conf and add the following lines:
Linux Distribution 2
- Save and restart your PC you should have 2 choices in GRUB, select “Linux Distribution 2”or whatever name you gave in grub.conf and this should start the second Linux distribution.
