Won't run:

feivel:~# grub-install --recheck
install_device not specified.
Usage: grub-install [OPTION] install_device
Install GRUB on your drive.
  -h, --help              print this message and exit
  -v, --version           print the version information and exit
  --root-directory=DIR    install GRUB images under the directory DIR
                          instead of the root directory.
  --grub-shell=FILE       use FILE as the grub shell.
  --force-lba             force GRUB to use LBA mode even for a buggy
  --recheck               probe a device map even if it already exists.
INSTALL_DEVICE can be a GRUB device name or a system device filename.
Reports bugs to <bug-grub@gnu.org>.

(fd0)	/dev/fd0
(hd0)	/dev/hda
