    Question BT2 installation problem

    Hi!

    First of all, I have to mention that BT2 should be my second OS on my HDD.
    I already have openSuse 10.3 installed on it.
    So what I did, was starting the live system and mounting the partition where my Suse kernels are (/dev/sda6) on /boot and the system partition where I want to install my BT2 on /backtrack. I didn't wrote anything in the MBR, because I already have a full-working MBR and I didn't want to overright it.
    Of course BT2 has now no entry in my bootloader (grub).
    My Problem now is, that Yast doesn't detect the OS automatically and I have no idea which kernel is from openSuse and which is from BT2
    in /boot is:

    backup_mbr
    symtypes-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp.gz
    boot
    symtypes-2.6.22.17-0.1-default.gz
    config-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp
    symvers-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp.gz
    config-2.6.22.17-0.1-default
    symvers-2.6.22.17-0.1-default.gz
    grub
    System.map-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp
    initrd
    System.map-2.6.22.17-0.1-default
    initrd-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp
    vmlinux-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp.gz
    initrd-2.6.22.17-0.1-default
    vmlinux-2.6.22.17-0.1-default.gz
    lost+found
    vmlinuz
    message
    vmlinuz-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp
    symsets-2.6.22.17-0.1-bigsmp.tar.gz
    vmlinuz-2.6.22.17-0.1-default
    symsets-2.6.22.17-0.1-default.tar.gz
    The BT2 System-Partition is on /dev/sda8 and mounted as /backtrack2.

    I hope for your help!

    Even though you failed to read the few and simple rules when you signed up I will help you. vmlinuz is your bt kernel. Really your entire /boot folder is a entire mess.
