I believe I have a unique variation of a fairly common problem. I've installed Fedora 12 on a system that was previously running Linux Mint 9 (ubuntu based), and discovered to my chagrin that my grub loader only sees Fedora as a boot option. I can still mount my mint partition, etc., but can't boot into it. I know there are methods of fixing this problem by using a live CD or similar way to get into ubuntu and changing grub from that side, but are there any changes I can make to my grub.cfg on the Fedora
side of things, which would be much easier?
I know my Mint partition's mount point and if you can steer me in the right direction I can get whatever other information you need, as well as the text of my current grub.cfg.
Thanks in advance!

my current grub.cfg file doesn't contain anything BUT fedora currently. "update-grub" and similar commands that i've used as an ubuntu user are no good in fedora.
I've got the first two lines of the four-line stanza I want to add to my fedora grub.cfg figured out:
The above is correct; (hdo,1) corresponds to my Mint partition's mount point, which I checked.
Poking around on other threads it appears that I need two additional lines, "kernel" and "initrd". Any help?
