RE: grub (was: Re: [vox-tech] Urgent - Problem in upgradation of RH 7.1 to RH 7. 2 !!)

Have you thought of doing a mini how-to or perhaps a talk on GRUB. I would
not mind learning more about it, but after working with it a little I became
rather confused with it. I found that I preferred LILO so I stayed with it,
but I would like to learn GRUB.

OTOH, if you want to install a bootloader once and never break your machine
again because you forgot to re-run /sbin/whatever after installing a new
kernel but before rebooting, use grub :-).

It is a bother to install it the first time, though. The documentation is
quite inadequate.
