I have a very simple setup which is based on two hard drives, let's call them sda and sdb. I want to have two different distributions on those hard drives, one based on Ubuntu and another based on Xubuntu for example.
Now reading about the Linux Boot Process, I get that the GRUB is loaded from the MBR and is used to select the kernel you want to load among other things.
But if I have two different drives, can I have two different GRUB with two different configuration files?
I have two different drives.... yes, but only one is bootable, so you have one copy of grub ..... the system on the second drive gets to have an entry in the grub boot menu
