    Question Trying to install BT3 with XP & Fedora

    Hello before all.

    Im posting here because i cannot boot BT3 after installed, i mean:

    i have three partitions into my laptop
    /hda1-> XP (NTFS)
    /hda2-> Fedora (ext3)
    /hda3-> BT3 (ext3)

    I have GRUB to reboot, this is grub.conf
    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
    # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
    # root (hd0,1)
    # kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
    # initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=0
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Fedora (2.6.23.9-85.fc8)
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-85.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.9-85.fc8.img
    title Backtrack
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda2 quiet SELINUX_INIT=NO
    title BackTrack 2
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda2
    title BackTrack 4
    root (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda2 ro
    title Backtrack3
    rootnoverify (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda2 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    title Other
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    as you can see i have tried some configurations trying to reboot with BT3
    but when i reboot i have a message error:

    Kernel pacnic
    or restarting system.

    Im using almost the same configuration i used with BT2...can someone tell me what am i doing wrong?

    This is what ive got when i reboot:

    title Backtrack__________________________________________________

    Thank you for your answer first, ive looked for this documentation and i found something...

    and now im posting with my backtrack3 installed on Hard Disk (HDD).

    Here you are what Grub looks now:

    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
    # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
    # root (hd0,1)
    # kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda2
    # initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=0
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd0,1)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    hiddenmenu
    title Fedora (2.6.23.9-85.fc8)
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-85.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.9-85.fc8.img
    title Backtrack3 Beta
    rootnoverify (hd0,2)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 ro autoexec=xconf;kdm
    boot
    title WindowsXP
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1
    Thanks again.
