Default Add Ubuntu to chameleon bootloader along with osx - 03-13-2011, 10:48 PM

Hi at the moment I have mac osx which boots up through the chameleon boot loader, I want to be able to add ubuntu which is on a partition of the drive.
Well I have no windows partition so thats why it does not wait 5 seconds I think. So mine goes Dell BIOD -> Chameleon -> OSX.
No boot options come up for booting into linux when I had the windows partition. I read something about the grub loader conflicting with the cham loader.
I dont know a way to manually add a boot option it seems like it auto detects everything.
Can anyone tell me how to add that option to the boot please?

Thank you.

Press a key while chameleon is loading, it will allow you to choose from which disk to boot. If you installed Ubuntu correctly, it's all that's needed.
