Different problem. Grub 1 can not be expected to know about
Grub 2. Grub 2 should know how to handle a Grub 1 system, but
There are many many ways to get around this, so many that it
gets confusing sorting out which method to choose. One of the
more explainable methods is to make a habit of installing
systems with boot loaders in their own root partition rather
than in the mbr. Then you are left with the comparatively
simple problem of having something in the mbr be able to find
all of the other boot loaders.
eg. Starting with one distibution on your system, let's call
it A, with a boot loader in the mbr. Install distribution B
with its own boot loader in its own root partion. Reconfigure
A's boot loader so that it can chain B's boot loader. Next
time you reboot you should see A's Lilo/Grub1/Grub2 screen
with a menu item for B (plus all of the original A options)
select B and then you should see a second boot loader, for B.
You might need to look up "chain".
In Lilo you want something like:
In Grub 1 you want something like:
You might get what you want by using Mageia's Control Center
and selecting "Other" operating systems - assuming that the
other installations already have a boot loader in their
respective root directories.
Sig goes here...
