grubconfig v1.28 Kent Robotti <dwilson24@nyc.rr.com> 3-24-2006

The script `grubconfig' helps you install the GRUB bootloader on
your Linux system.

It requires the `bash' shell and the `dialog' program to run.

It supports IDE and SCSI devices and has no support for RAID devices.

These are the options you can use at the GRUB expert install menu:

1. Start GRUB configuration with a new GRUB header.

   This is the first step to create a new configuration 
   file, /boot/grub/menu.lst or grub.conf, with no OS's
   entered into it (yet).

   You will be asked where you want to install GRUB. This
   can be to your Master Boot Record, a Linux partition's
   superblock (for OS/2's Boot Manager etc. to boot), or to
   a 1.44 MB formatted floppy disk. 
   
   Try installing to a floppy disk first, if it works
   on the floppy it will probably work on the MBR, or
   superblock.
   
   Once you've started a new /boot/grub/menu.lst or grub.conf,
   you must add at least one OS to it before you can install GRUB.

   Next you'll want to add at least one Linux partition, the
   one that will hold the GRUB files in /boot/grub.

   You then may want to add OTHER partitions, if you have any.
   
2. Menu choices to add Linux and OTHER DOS/WIN/BSD/OS2/HURD/QNX/PLAN9/
   BEOS/Minix to the /boot/grub/menu.lst or grub.conf config file.

   These all pretty much work the same way. You'll be asked 
   which partitions you want to include in the grub menu, and 
   you'll also be asked to assign a label to each partition.
   The label can be any name such as Redhat Linux,
   Slackware Linux, or WinXP etc.

3. Install GRUB
   
   Once you've looked at your new config file and are 
   satisfied with the way it looks, pick this option to 
   install GRUB and exit the GRUB installation menu.

Other options:

  -- View your current /boot/grub/menu.lst or grub.conf file

   If you haven't begun building a new menu.lst or grub.conf, this
   option will let you take a look at the existing one in /boot/grub
   on your root Linux partition. 

   If you have begun constructing a new menu.lst or grub.conf, this
   option will let you view the progress on that.

 -- Skip GRUB installation or exit this menu

  This option skips GRUB installation. Use this if you don't 
  want to install GRUB, or if you've already installed it and 
  want to exit.

Other GRUB information:

  GRUB on the Master Boot Record can be removed easily. 
  
  DOS/Win9x fdisk has a 'fdisk /mbr' option that restores the original
  master boot record. You can also restore your original boot sector
  from the copy 'grubconfig' makes in /boot/grub/mbr.device.number.
  
  This is probably the best way to go about it.
  
  # dd if=/boot/grub/mbr.device.number of=/dev/device bs=512 count=1

  If you want to make any changes you don't need to run grubconfig
  again, you can just edit /boot/grub/menu.lst by hand.

grubconfig is based on liloconfig by Patrick Volkerding from the
Slackware Linux distribution.
