Now it works fine.
Hereafter what I did (I'm not sure this the best or shortest way...however it
On the third disk I created a partition +1GB type Linux. The remaining space
is type LVM on which I created a logical volume 'fedora-7' (space 15GB) for
I proceed Fedora-7 installation by specifying :
--- partition 1GB with mount point /boot
--- logical volume 'fedora-7' with mount point /
*without* any MBR or grub installation.
After installation I have a /boot with needed Fedora-7 files.
I modified my current existing grub (installed on my first partition) to add a
stanza for Fedora-7 which specify root= ..etc.. pointing to LVM logical
volume containing the / of Fedora.
After reboot on grub menu I can choose Fedora-7 and boot on it.
