Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the Rawhide stanzas in
grub.conf will not work with your current setup. Grub is looking for
your Rawhide kernel in the boot directory where your grub.conf is
located. (By the information you provided, I'm guessing that is your
Fedora 8 /boot directory.)
Ahh - yes - that sounds right - and your solutions both sound feasible.
I will try when I next get a chance to get a few hours to test again....
I guess that I made an error when doing the install by selecting not to
install grub in rawhide - what I did not want was to overwrite the existing
grub on the mbr - but really wanted to install the grub files in /boot
on the rawhide partition, but leave the mbr alone. Clearly I did not
get grub at all in the rawhide install!
One question - can I install grub in the rawhide partition even though I
cannot currently boot to it? i.e. can I copy the grub files from the
F8 /boot directory to the rawhide partition /boot and get it to work?
BTW the /boot directory in F8 is just a directory inside the F8 partition
and not a separate /boot partition.
