Re: Does lenny use grub2?

b) Install it in the first sector of a partition -> this is my
solution, as it does not touch the MBR at all and you can have as many
grubs as you want :-)
My preferred solution too. An additional bonus is that you get rather
robust, self-contained partitions: they don't depend on any Grubs
residing on other partitions, so are completely impervious to you
reformatting other partitions, or installing new systems on them, or
whatever. In fact, as you rightly point out, even in the remote case
that all your partitions save one get somehow borked, you just have to
enable the surviving partition and the
computer will boot by just marking it with the boot-flag. I know,
bit messy O:-)
It may be a bit messy, but is also very clean and simple to maintain.
