For those of you whose linux partition(Ubuntu or Moblin) cant be seen by Chameleon,
*Check for gpt, if you got a wrong partition type for linux partition(just like me, I got EFI system type for linux partition.)
btw, usually in this sutiation, booting from Grub installed in linux partition works fine. ('cause mbr table is fine and active flag setted to linux partition)
*Modify gpt linux partition type to Basic Data Partition(GUID: EBD0A0A2-B9E5-4433-87C0-68B6B72699C7), now Chameleon should see this linux parition and boot grub bootloader installed inside partition.
I use gdisk command to edit/save gpt. It's easy to use and powerful, you can find it in Gparted Live on USB Key (GParted Live on USB)
grub is only used to boot linux(in my case: moblin v2.1)

For me, I did this on a desktop computer. SO with OS X I didn't use net book boot maker to install Chameleon.
After installing Ubuntu, I popped in my DVD of OS X which had the Darwin Boot loader, so I put me right into Mac OS X, and I had internet configured. So from there I downloaded my install pkg file for Chameleon without the Net Book Boot maker !
Thanks for the guide.
