The manual at http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/html_node/index.html,
which has the title GNU GRUB Manual 0.97

Am I looking in the wrong place?

The grub package installed on my system (Debian etch, due to be upgraded
soon) is called grub, version 0.97-27etch1.

So I'd guess I'm using grub-legacy, though it's not called that, instead
of grub2, which isn't available (but might be after I upgrade).
