Hi all,

Thanks for the great work of chameleon 2.0 RC1.
I have 2 questions when I try to make my USB drive an installer for iPC 10.5.6 DVD & Linux Mint 7 CD.
The iPC installer works fine.

Scheme of my USB drive is like this:

primary 1:
HFS+ chameleon only
primary 2:
HFS+ iPC 10.5.6 DVD (restored from disc image)
primary 3:
FAT16 Linux Mint 7 CD (installed using their tutorial)
primary 4:
FAT32 data

Here comes the problem:

1. When dedicated chameleon partition 1 is active, I cannot choose to boot into the Linux Mint installer partition. When I choose partition 3 and press ENTER, the selection jump back to partition 1.
In order to boot the Linux Mint 7 LiveCD partition, I have to use fdisk to set primary 3 as the only active. Partition 3 runs fine that way.

2. In the chameleon menu, the text at the lower row describing the drive labels are blurred. This happens before I have done anything on the linux partition.

Please give me some clue.

I know the GRUB on hda(0,2) trick, but that's for ext3 installed partition of linux
This Linux Mint installer partition is in FAT16, and this makes me have no clue at all...
