Summary:  grub doesn't get along with grub

Original Submission:  If I dual boot a computer with 2 versions of linux that 
use GRUB, it is not a very simple thing to configure them.

If I install GRUB on /dev/hda for os 1, and install GRUB on /dev/hda2 for os 2, 
I cannot use chainloader +1 in the grub.conf file for the grub on /dev/hda.  I 
know this is not the most elegant solution, but from the documentation this 
should definitely work.

On the wish list side, I think it would be nice if the grub installer had a way 
to get configuration information from a previously installed grub.  I know this 
is partly an operating system issue and not a bootloader issue, but it would be 
helpful if there was a grub utility that the operating systems could use while 
they are being installed.  It is somewhat embarrassing that 2 versions of linux 
take special manual configuration to dual boot.
