I have successfully installed OSX 10.6.5 on my machine and am happy that it all seems to be working well. But my boot config need to be changed but i don't know how or if it's possible.

My Harddrive and OS configuration is as follows :-

Drive 1 - 1TB - Contains 'Grub' bootloader with both Windows 7 and Linux installed.
Drive 2 - 250GB - Contains 'Chameleon' Bootloader and OSX install.

When I boot my machine i currently get presented with the 'Grub' bootlader with Linux and Windows options due to Drive on having boot priority.
To access my OSX install I have to manually select my OSX drive in my BIOS 'Boot Menu' F12 on my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R mobo.
Is there a way for me to install 'Chameleon' in place of 'Grub' on Drive-1 without destroying my installs? I'm not too worried if I lose my Linux install as it contains nothing important but I don't want to lose my OSX or Windows 7 installs.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated..

Easiest is to set the OSX HD as default for #1 boot in BIOS.
Then you can also select Linux or Win in Chameleon.

The simplest ways are often the best! Changed my boot priorities within BIOS... I was amazed that Windows still worked without any annoying 'NTLDR missing' errors.
Great stuff.. now back to learning OSX :)
