 Multibooting 101

linmagau brings us: Multibooting 101.

"The answers to these questions lie in the way the sytems have been configured. SuSE has entries about what its root filesystem is and which kernel to use, and what options to pass to the kernel for the simple reason that GRUB is going to be doing the booting of the SuSE partition. In the case of Windows and Mdk, Grub is merely passing the buck to another bootloader. In the case of Windows, this is the file io.sys (If I remember correctly) that was loaded right at the beginning of the Windows C: drive, and in the case of Mdk, it is the LILO we installed in the / directory."
