No, no stupid question at all. SGD is very good but I couldn't say the
same for their docs and help: they are "messy".
Anyway, I looked into their news forums and found this thread:
Last Super Grub Disk based on Grub legacy: 0.9798 released.
So I'm afraid the latest available versions only work for Grub2
installations and those having the legacy version installed on their
systems should use the old SGD releases :-/
