http://ubuntuforums.org – I currently have Ubuntu installed in a LVM setup, with /boot on a seperate partition. I want to add gentoo into the mix (I have space in the LVM), but I want to keep the grub in Ubuntu. I made this up theoretically, but would it work? 1. Install Gentoo in the LVM, without grub 2. Setup the Ubuntu Chroot in Gentoo by binding the /dev /proc /sys dirs and mounting the Ubuntu root. 3. Mount the boot partition to the Ubuntu Chroot 4. Symlink Ubuntu's /boot to gentoo's /boot so that the kernels that gentoo installs will land in the right place. 5. Setup a update-grub script on gentoo to run upda (Hardware)
