    hi all
    need your help, i'm abit stuck

    i installed windows in hda1 then fedora core 6 on another partition (hda2), and red hat 9 on hda5 [according to grub's hard disk notation]. i also created 2 swap spaces for both linux versions. Also, i did not create boot partitions on both linux os's. I can boot into windows and red hat, but when i try into boot into fedora i get this error
    (this might be important: i'm using grub for red hat)

    rootnoverfy (hd0,1)
    chainloader +1

    "Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format"
    Press any key to continue...

    And here is my partitioning table:

    Disk /dev/hda:


    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System

    /dev/hda1 1 4199 31744408+ 7 HPFS/NTFS

    /dev/hda2 * 4200 7423 24370605 83 Linux

    /dev/hda3 7423 7562 1052257+ 82 Linux swap

    /dev/hda4 7563 10587 22869000 f Win95 Ext'd (LBA)

    /dev/hda5 7702 10587 21818160 83 Linux

    /dev/hda6 7563 7701 1050777 82 Linux swap


    Partition table entries are not in disk order

    and here is my grub.conf file


    # 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 (hd0,4)

    # kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda5

    # initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/hda

    default=1

    timeout=10

    splashimage=(hd0,4)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

    title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)

    root (hd0,4)

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/1

    initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img
    title Windows XP Professional

    rootnoverify (hd0,0)

    chainloader +1
    title Fedora Core 6

    rootnoverify (hd0,1)

    chainloader +1


    your help is welcome..
