I want to chainload Paldo's GRUB but I could not place it in the root of the partition. I did not see that option with the installer. Is there a way to do so?

You have to manually install GRUB if you need it in the partition for chainloading.

This should work with
Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
root (hdX,Y)
setup (hdX,Y)

in the grub shell (where X is the GRUB disk number and Y the partition number) or with the grub-install command.

Thanks,

I know how to install GRUB in the root with that command:

root (hdX,Y)
setup (hdX,Y)

...but is there anything to be done to the GRUB that is installed by the command after that? It seems to me that I have done that command in the past, installed GRUB in the root of the partition for chainloading and the GRUB in the root would not boot the distro because it did not have the necessary information. It was a blank menu.lst, if I remember correctly. I do not know how to figure out all of the particulars of a GRUB menu.lst entry to boot a kernel or image, that is why I chainload.

maybe you've to mod root= and resume= and maybe remove nodmraid
