  This is correct (I couldn't remember the exact command, which is part of why
I wimped out and said "Read The Manual"), but you don't need to create the disk
to do this; recent grubs can be run from the UNIX shell in command-line mode
to do this (although you don't need to issue the last three commands to boot
since you already have, you want to say root=(device holding grub stuff), etc)


We are Debian of Borg.  You will be packaged.  Resistance is futile.
