Hi All,
I am multi-booting several different OS's (XP + 6 Linux OS').

I am using Grub from PCLinuOS, and am able to boot Vector but only in verbose mode.

I did a search on these forums and found what should have been the solution, but it hangs on me.

Here is an excerpt of the three entries I have for Vector:
The first entry boots and shuts down in verbose mode.
The second entry is the solution I mention above, but it only displays the splash screen and then hangs, nothing else happens.
The third entry (I bastardized the first two) boots in verbose mode but shuts down in splash mode.

I would very much like to boot and shut down in splash mode.

If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I figured it out.
I had to do this:

Quote
title  Vector 6 KDE
root  (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda6 ro vga=791 splash=silent
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd

I had to add (hdo,5) after initrd.
