Following the above I installed os 12.3 RC2. All went well and I could booth into either 12.2 or 12.3 -- but with some "fiddling" re booting into 12.2 because I upgraded the kernel in 12.2 from 3.8.1-1 to 3.8.1-2 but this new kernel was not being recognised at boot time (details about this on request, if you want to know about this).

I installed RC2 a few days back, using grub2, as a secondary system on this laptop. I read no guide, just used common sense and Yast (and a full image backup).

What I did was tell yast to install grub 2 on the partition dedicated to RC2, and to not write anything to the MBR (which it will do by default). I may have forgotten another click by now. Ah! Yes, it also wanted to change some bootable marks which I disabled.

Piece of cake :-)

Of course, my main system (see sig below) uses grub 1 and has an entry that points to the test partition, which now starts grub2.
