I'd get RH9 to install grub into its /boot or root partition rather than the
Master Boot Record (MBR). Then, add an entry to your FC3 grub.conf to
chain-load the RH9 version of grub:
title Red Hat Linux 9
rootnoverify (hd1,0) <- partition RH9 grub is installed in
Whilst this adds an extra menu level (you have to go through the FC3 grub menu
to get to the RH9 grub menu), it will only ever have to be done once. Kernel
updates in each OS will cause the right entries to be made in the appropriate
grub.conf file and it'll "just work". If you manually add the RH9
kernel/initrd entries to your FC3 grub.conf then you save the extra menu level
but you'll have to fix the manual entries each time you update the RH9 kernel.
