hi guys,

Been trying to install bt4 along with Ubuntu 9.10 to use a common /home partition. my partition table is as follows.

HTML Code:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          31      248976   83  Linux
/dev/sda2              32       30401   243947025    5  Extended
/dev/sda5              32         404     2996091   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6             405        4139    30001356   83  Linux      (/ for ubuntu 9.10)
/dev/sda7            4887       30401   204949206   83  Linux      (/home)
/dev/sda8            4140        4886     6000246   83  Linux      (/ for bt4)

installed Ubuntu using the gui and it's working fine. then boot from bt4 cd, mounted sda8 to /mnt/bt4 and sda1 to /mnt/bt4/boot then copy the files from cd in to the partition. then reboot in to ubuntu and mount the sda8, sda1 then proc, and dev. when chroot in to this grub version is .97.

as the ubuntu 9.10 uses grub 2, opened another terminal and did a 'update-grub'. here is the output
HTML Code:

when reboot, it shows the grub menu, but works only for the 9.10. when select 8.10 it gives me "error: you need yo load the kernel first". the grub command is as follows

HTML Code:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.30.9 root=/dev/sda8
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.30.9
any idea what might causing the problem
