Until I can get my wireless enabled in my 6 distro; how can I make it boot to my other os?

Is there a tutorial somewhere?

Did you install GRUB? If you did it should give you the option to boot your other OS, just press the arrows when GRUB loads so it will display all the options. By default GRUB loads FC.

You can log in FC. Can't you? Well, log in, and edit the file as root /boot/grub/grub.conf just be careful on that.

I'd also advise that you quote exactly from the equivilent OS's file (assuming it's also linux) or better yet, try to use the GRUB copy from your secondary os and by pass some of the oddness from the Fedora version.

Oh if you move the other OS high enough in grub.conf, menu-normal.lst or whatever it is called it will become your default operating system
