Hi, guys,

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 today for a dual boot but I can't get the OSs to recognize each other for the bootloader. If I install LiLo Ubuntu's not going to be listed at boot time, and if I install GrUB then Vector won't be listed at boot time. I've tried to manually add the OSs to both bootloaders in turn but I've had no success. Help!?

I have found that on Debian/Ubuntu, if you make a symlink "vmlinuz" in /boot, pointing to the kernel (vmlinuz-generic-something), then vliloconf picks it up.

Drawback: If the update manager upgrades the kernel, you have to manually repeat the procedure to use the new one.
