I just installed M-8.5 to my hard drive (triple-boot w/ Debian and M$Win7). For some reason, the Grub menu doesn't list my Debian install, but shows the M$Win7 and antiX ...... antix won't connect to the I-net for some reason, I've tried rutilt, Ceni, and WICD - each of which either won't connect or show no networks available, but M$Win7 is connected right now - with an immediate -no pain connection :!: :lol: Is M8.5 so out of date that the connection apps are no longer valid? And why can't the antiX Grub see the Debian install? Even using the M-8.5 as a live CD I can't connect to the I-net :? I have no way to burn a newer version of antiX, and I wanted this one becuz I like to use Legacy Grub, rather than trying to figure out Grub 2. Any ideas/help will be appreciated! Thanks

1. Post your /boot/grub/menu.lst and tell us where Debian is
2. blkid in a rrot terminal.
3. Give us info about your net connection.

inxi -n

Since I can't get on the net with antiX, and Grub can't find my Debian, I only have Winblows to access the I-net. It will take me some time to be able to do that and write it all down by hand (or send myself an email?). I only get to the I-net every so often, so I will do that when I get the chance. Thanks for your response ;)

As posted, I can't find my Debian due to the antiX not showing it, however, here is a shortened version of the information that I have been able to get from the antiX /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Code:
Title antiX at  sdb4, kernel 2.6.32-1-mepis
Kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-1-mepis root=/dev/sda4 nomce quiet nosplash vga=791
Initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-1-mepis
boot

Title Windows 7 (loader) at sda1
Rootnoverify (hd0, 0)
Chainloader +1

HUH :?: :? I understand the 'root terminal, but what did you mean by "blkid" ?

This information was gathered using Win 7;
Name: Sidney-Richland Library2
SSID: Sidney-Richland Library2
Network Type: access point
Network Availability: all users

I'm going back to the antiX to see if Gparted can give me any more info about the HDD, and will see if I can copy the info from "inxi -n" Thanks for your response :mrgreen:

Save the information to a file and then copy that file to a usb stick
