howto boot AL reiserfs on HD with another Linux / mbr Grub

Hi,

Do someone knows where to read how to configure pre-existing Grub to boot installed Arch Linux on a HD with another Linux ?

Here is fdisk -l of my HD (simplified) :

/dev/hda1   *           1         134     1076323+   6  FAT16  --> Win98 lite
/dev/hda2             135        9964    78959475    f  W95 Etendu (LBA)
/dev/hda8            2444        2445       16033+  83  Linux --> Mandriva cooker ext2 /boot
/dev/hda9            2446        2698     2032191   83  Linux --> Mandriva cooker ext3 /
/dev/hda14           3833        4406     4610623+  83  Linux --> Arch Linux reiserfs /
/dev/hda15           4407        4470      514048+  83  Linux --> Arch Linux reiserfs /home
/dev/hda16           5121        9964    38909398+  83  Linux --> ext3 /stockage
/dev/hda17           5056        5120      522081   82  Linux swap / Solaris

Grub menu.lst :

timeout 10
splashimage (hd0,7)/grub/keepingthefaith.xpm.gz
default 4

title windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

title archlinux
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part14 ro vga=773 devfs=nomount

title 2611-10kozaki
kernel (hd0,7)/vmlinuz-2.6.11-10kozaki root=/dev/hda9 noapic nolapic splash=silent mem=1024M vga=794
initrd (hd0,7)/initrd-2.6.11-10kozaki.img

title 2612-12
kernel (hd0,7)/vmlinuz-2.6.12-12mdk root=/dev/hda9 noapic nolapic splash=silent mem=1024M vga=794
initrd (hd0,7)/initrd-2.6.12-12mdk.img

I've tried to boot with (archlinux Grub menu.lst's lines) :
title archlinux
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part14 ro vga=773
&
root (hd0,14)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part14 ro vga=773
&
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/hda14 ro vga=773 devfs=nomount
& maybe others I don"t remember.

Booting archlinux always says : "can't find file" or something.
May I install AL vmlinuz26 & Co into same /boot partition than Mandriva ?
Or maybe one need to load 'reiserfs' when booting a reiserfs / partition (in /etc/rc.conf) ?
Since Reiserfs is the default choice when installing AL, I think (maybe wrongly) it's loaded by default.

Re: howto boot AL reiserfs on HD with another Linux / mbr Grub

I had the problem earlier this month.

Trying adding,

Savedefault
Boot

at the end of the arch entry. you may need to remove devfs=nomount
also.

I'm not home with my box so I can't verify at this time.
