well, no, since grep lives in /bin. On startup, / get mounted read-only.
Thats the only way fsck can be run. That means that you can use grep,
and anything else livig in /bin. I personally have almost everything in
one partition, so I can use on_acpi_power as well, but for the sake of
speed, I prefer the grep method.
