Re: Success on installing Hurd

The jist of the conversation seemed to imply that mbr was primarily used
to increase the size of the MBR by 64k.  I hadn't realized that mbr was
a bootloader program as well.  Then again why would I need to increase
my MBR by 64k if GRUB is already sized to fit in the MBR?
