I installed in first the Big Linux (ext3/Swap) good job.
After to try another Linux I installed Fedora ( other ext3/swap), and ok no problem run well.
But of course now i have a problem .. the sistem begin allways in Fedora.
The Fedora have a option BootLoader and inside this frame i have Fedora and Other.
i select other and nothing, no run.
how can i make a multiboot in the begin as in Windows system ?
Where is the dir or file boot in the FEdora? Can i edit the file and do some changes ?

Please be pacience with me ......

hi jribas.

So you installed fedora on top of the other linux distribution?
Did you make partitions?
Do you want to install a new parallel operating system along with the already installed fedora?

Hello jribas,

It's /boot/grub/grub.conf, and yes you can edit it to make changes (and additions).
Code:
su
gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf
I don't know anything about Big Linux, of course. But I saw at its home page that it is based on Ubuntu. So I believe a good thing to try in the Fedora grub.conf to boot Big Linux is this...
Code:
title Big Linux
configfile (hdx,y)/boot/grub/menu.lst
You change x & y to the drive & partition of the Big Linux partition.

That was pure guesswork by me. So if it doesn't work, return and post the results of these commands in a Fedora terminal...
Code:
su
/sbin/fdisk -l
cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
