Dual linux boot

By dangolrajesh ·
Dear Friends,
I am very new user about linux. I don't know whether it can be or not.
I have Window xp on my computer. I install openSuse 10.3 on it both are working well.Then I install Redhat 5 on my computer. Installation complete without any problem. When I restart the computer It shows only Redhat and Windows xp but no Opensuse 10.3. Then I modify the grub of redhat and add the title, kernel and initrd of the openSuse 10.3 and save it and restart it. It show all the three option with openSuse 10.3. When I try to enter in Redhat and windowsXP there is no problem but when I try to enter on OpenSuse it wont boot, it says error.. kernel panic ....
Then i rebooted it and again went to the boot option and select opensuse and press "C" for command then i install root, kernel and initrd of opensuse 10.3 then boot it it boots and it seems all fine. Then I edit the grub of the opensuse and install the title, kernel and initrd of both opensuse and redhat and save it. when i reebot it again shows all the three boot option but the same problem again. I will be very thankfull for your help.

You are loading both Linux distro's in the same partition. You need seperate partitions for each distro. The different kernel versions are what is causing the kernel panic.
