IMHO grub makes a big mistake by trying to be FS aware; a boot loader
should be a boot loader, not it's own damn mini OS with support for all
filesystems... next thing they will be giving it its own initrd for
dynamically loading extra fs modules :-)

I use LILO... it just loads stuff off the disk and runs it. I can use
whatever FS I like and it just works.
