dual booting with custom kernels [closed]

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – so I am trying to dual boot mint and arch linux, so I installed mint and then I installed arch skipping the boot loader. Then I compiled a kernel in mint and ran update-grup. Everything went well up until this point, when in arch I tried to run make install it complained that it couldn't find lilo. So I'm not sure how to get this to work. should I create a common /boot parition? (HowTos)
