Grub installation guide: [was Re: Install from FreeBSD]
On this point, maybe it is a good idea to create a generic howto for
grub as i found the
installation quite confusing at first - mainly due to problems with
using very old versions.
For linux users i'd suggest creating a seperate ext2 /boot partition
and then placing stage1, stage2, menu.lst, etc into /boot/grub.
Then create a bootdisk with grub 5.93.1 (IIRC) by
dd if=image of=/dev/fd0 count=512
Then boot from this disk and type: roughly...
install /grub/stage1 d (hd0) /grub/stage2 p /grub/menu.lst
Is there already an "image" available? (count=512, stage1, seek=1,
Maybe it would be a good idea to place this on the hurd page, and remove
other old versions...
