I have a hard drive with several linux distros running from a grub boot, and would like to add puppy to my existing /boot/grub/menu.lst file. What would the proper boot stanza consist of? (I ran the hard disk install, option 1, to a vfat partition, and created a boot floppy, not installing grub)

(note: this was posted to the "grub bootloader" topic, but thought it was a bit off, so started a thread.)

Or would it be necessary to do the #2 install, devoting a partition to puppy?

Thanks.

that's how i run Puppy

the lines i have in Grub are:

title = Puppy Linux
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PFILE=pup001-none-262144 PHOME=hda1
initrd /image.gz

this will boot from Puppy files on drive C:
and make the pup001 file about 260 megs

change hd0,0 to the drive and partition you have your Puppy files on

change the path to vmlinuz and image.gz if you put them in a folder
