Hey, why not use grub2 ? it's shipped with Squeeze , Wheezy , Sid?

I have to say that grub 2 is more powerful , as far as I know .
it behaves more like *nix software, such as the configuration file,which
means we'd better not edit the config of grub directly  .
And it has the ability to probe other systems in the same hard disk (
though with some bugs to probe correctly the Mandriva/Mageia system)

the most important is it is maintained actively, while grub legacy is
not maintained
anymore .
