Jay will have to explain the his problem more completely, but I think
the first install of a Multi-BOOT setup just didn't go well and somehow
failed to install the 'kernel' package because it wouldn't install the
kernel without installing Grub and he didn't like it's choice of where
it wanted to install Grub.
As far FC8's mkinitrd well see my other message for how I helped him get
the necessary package(s) installed.
Someones first time working with 'chroot' can be a little confusing,
to say the least, and I couldn't by just email explain what the
following was really doing:
# chroot /mnt/new /usr/sbin/mkinitrd 220.127.116.11-42
and that the "/usr/sbin/mkinitrd" file only needed to be on the Fedora
side of things to work.
Also I'm use to Ubuntu/Debian which uses /usr/sbin/mkinitramfs for the
name of the command.
