Sup. I got WIn, ubuntu and Backtrack 3 on my HD, but I don’t know how to add a bootpath to Backtrack 3 for GRUB 🙁 Could someone help me? THX 😉
Just to get rid of the confusion. Know that a bootloader may appear in three variations.
1. If you already have Win on your system. You may keep then MS’s bootloader and modify it so it gives you the choice to boot into othher systems, the way nicohamone described it up there.
2. If you have Win and Ubuntu and your installing BackTrack. The original MS’s bootloader has been replaced by Ubuntu’s Grub and you will not let BackTrack write it over with it’s bootloader. You just edit the Grub in Ubuntu (insert a record about BT being present -> shsown at the end of the comment).
3. If you have any number of operating systems, you may let BackTrack overwrite the formere bootloader with LILO for example. But then you have to edit the lilo.conf to insert the information about the systems you had already installed. Don’t forget to write the LILO in.
Thhis is my edit (inserting BackTrack record into Ubuntu’s GRUB):
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda6 ro quiet splash vga=792
initrd /boot/splash.initrd boot
where root (hd0,5) and root=/dev/sda6 will be your own partition number where you have BT installed. Just typing in something is not enough. You have to define the right systems location in partiotion from the configuration’s point of view. The commands for partition detection or information are
Disk backup is like this..
dd if=/dev/sda1 of=image_sda1.iso
