GRUB boots from a floppy only though, doesn't it?  So it seems I
wouldn't have to overwrite Booteasy to install the hurd.  If GRUB is
booting the hurd from a floppy as I've read, then I could just boot
without the floppy as I normally do when I want to run FreeBSD, and boot
with the GRUB floppy to get into hurd.
