Boot Linux from GRUB? (Was: Boot HURD with lilo?)

If you put GRUB on the HURD partition.

Better would be to boot Linux from GRUB.  It has a nice menu system,
and a command line that groks ext2fs.  (You can select a kernel from
anywhere on the drive at boot time.)  Moreover, with the Linux
patches, you can boot bzimages with it - even on machines (like my
laptop) that LILO can't boot bzimages on.

(I personally always keep a copy of GRUB on a floppy, so I boot any
linux box after trashing the MBR.)
