Booting Linux from Chameleon
« on: June 28, 2009, 05:37:01 PM »
I have 3 operating systems on my hard drive.  Vista, OS X, and Gentoo.  Chameleon 2 RC looks amazing, and I want to install it on my PC, and make it the default bootloader (instead of GRUB).  I have a question though.
How exactly does Chameleon boot Linux?  Does it load the kernel directly, or does it chainload GRUB?

It chainloads grub, so you need to install grub on your gentoo partition, this has been discussed on the forum, if you need more details, use the search option.

I already have GRUB set up, that was all I needed to know.  Thanks.
