[Mageia-discuss] can bootable partitions be detected during installation?

During a test installation of M2b3 some other installations are
detected and get listed in the Grub menu, but others don't.
For example, Ubuntu is ignored. That uses Grub2 so it would be
a bit much to expect Grub to understand it, BUT Ubuntu's Grub2
is installed on Unbutu's root partition.
Can partitions with boot loaders on them be detected and listed
in Grub's menu as something to be chained? i.e. Install M2b3
and get Grub installed to the mbr. Then on booting, Grub could
present a menu that includes all of the standard M2b3 options,
any other kernels that were found (not the Ubuntu kernels because
they are under Grub2 and too hard) and an entry for the Ubuntu
partition. The partition is LABELed "Ubuntu". If "Ubuntu" were
selected from the M2b3 mbr Grub menu, then the Grub2 on the Ubuntu
root partition could be chained (and then an Ubuntu kernel).
Is this do-able?
Sig goes here...
