That's good to hear. I didn't realize that CBLFS had a page. I used this
as a general guide: http://grub.enbug.org/TestingOnX86
I must say, this was the easiest boot loader setup (just to get from
source to a working boot screen) I have yet encountered in Linux. It
appears to be working well, and the default doesn't seem to introduce
any major bells and whistles that I can see.
The auto-configuration tools are pretty accurate. With two quick
commands you can get grub auto-configured for a default Linux setup
pretty easily. Obviously we'd want to show how to tweak the
configuration manually, but I think, just to get things working for
trunk, we could just drop in the commands auto-config and build on that.
As an aside, what does everyone think of having grub moved down to
chapter 8 just after the installation of the kernel? I kind of like it
