You can install grub anyway and make the diskette just in case. Grub takes
some getting used to but should come out just as a text file just like lilo,
so practise configuring the LFS system using your host system first. At least
you will be familiar with the start-up screen. I use SuSE and have XP, SuSE
(as default) , Mandrake, and two BLFS systems (the next bit) as wel as the
safety and floppy options.
Check out your /boot/grub/menu.lst file and you'll see waht to expect
This is a sample of my grub file:
# Modified by YaST2. Last modification on Mon Jun 7 16:09:58 2004
color white/blue black/light-gray
kernel (hd0,2)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x317 hdc=ide-scsi hdclun=0
kernel /boot/lfskernel root=/dev/hda7 ro
kernel /boot/lfskernel root=/dev/hda9 ro
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda10
Above (hd0,9) refers to the first hard disk partition 10 in the /mnt/fstab
file. Notice we mount the lfs stages ro, but they should be read/write when
you boot them!
