Regarding GRUB 2 (was: Re: Bug#516458: HFS module fails to read some files)

Hi, Michel.

I'm just catching up with some old e-mails, and I found this one.

What are your experiences with grub-ieee1275?

I tried some months ago to install it and all that I got was some
complaint about not knowing what to do with the graphical framebuffer (I
don't remember the literal message). How does it work for you?

I'm still keeping an installation of MacOS X 10.4 on my iBook G3 and I
would like to keep it.

Thanks, Rogério Brito.
