I have tried that, and I end up at the ' grub> _ ' prompt. I need to read the manual (using 'pinfo grub') to learn what to do next.
I have my partition layout. What do I need to type into the GRUB command line to get GRUB to boot the installed Linux under /boot?
Is there any way to make a GRUB bootable floppy disk, that will hold all the required files such as stage1, stage2, menu.lst etc. So this would give me the same GRUB GUI straight off the boot floppy, as I get when booting from a working GRUB MBR installation?
That way all I have to do is to edit the GRUB boot parameters by pressing 'e' and then all will be working again? Being on a floppy disk, I could even edit the menu list on the floppy, in theory the boot sequence should be exactly the same then, just like booting from the working MBR installation of GRUB.
