I have attached the list of files under the Geexbox partition.   

GEEXBOX/etc/grub/grub.conf looks as follows :

title _TITLE_
root  _ROOTDEV_
kernel  /vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 rw rdinit=linuxrc boot=_DEVNAME_ lang=en remote=default_remote receiver=default_receiver keymap=qwerty splash=silent vga=789 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr _HDTV_ _DEBUG_ _CONFIG_
initrd  /initrd.gz

I hope that will give you an idea of the layout geexbox uses.

Yes. I saw that only after reportbug-gtk had sent it :-( Sorry, if it
caused a discrepancy in my reporting and the attached file.

It is using grub.

If you want any more information, I will provide the same.

Oh, I am a C programmer and I'm okay

And when it works, I shout hoo-ray
