Unhappy GRUB woes with FC9 - Multi-boot system

Hi All,

I do use Linux distros regularly along with Solaris and Windows. This is the disk Geometry:

Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x2a642a63

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1958 15727603+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 1959 3133 9438187+ bf Solaris
/dev/sda3 3134 9729 52982370 f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 3134 3198 522081 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6 3199 4112 7341673+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 4113 4765 5245191 83 Linux (PCQLinux, not in the MBR)
/dev/sda8 4766 5548 6289416 83 Linux
/dev/sda9 5549 7115 12586896 83 Linux (FC9, not in the MBR)
/dev/sda10 7116 8159 8385898+ 83 Linux (this OpenSUSE10 & other OSes in MBR)
/dev/sda11 8160 9729 12610993+ 7 HPFS/NTFS


After working a lot with FC8, recently I've downloaded FC9 and installed freshly in:

/dev/sda9 5549 7115 12586896 83 Linux

Strangely, I've got a problem with FC9 as the GRUB throws up the error as bad file or directory blah blah.

Here is the grub.conf and fstab:


title Fedora Core 9 Linux (2.6.25-14.fc9.i686)
root (hd0,8)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 ro root=UUID=a57acf67-35ed-4ce6-bc88-11809cf33ec1 rhgb quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.img


UUID=a57acf67-35ed-4ce6-bc88-11809cf33ec1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
UUID=98fc4ef6-61e1-4df9-a608-df0d3e3717a2 swap swap defaults 0 0


I fail to understand why FC9's GRUB refuses to boot, it never happened to me earlier. Am actually puzzled with this problem

Please provide inputs in this regard.

Thanks,
bulava
