GRUB

I figured out the solution.

 

To reinstall the grub you need to do

grub-install /dev/hda

 

This will write the stage1 to the MBR.

Hi,

 

I downloaded the cvs module grub from os.inf.tu-dresden.de .

 

I built the binaries. Doing make, make check, make install did not
install this GRUB version (0.90..), my old gnu version (0.93) is what
gets loaded when I restart the machine. I also ran the grub-install file
from build/util directory:

 

./grub-install /dev/hda6

Installation finished. No error reported.

This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/device.map.

Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,

fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.

 

# this device map was generated by anaconda

(fd0)     /dev/fd0

(hd0)     /dev/hda

 

/dev/hda6 is where my " / " mounted.

 

After this also my old grub is being loaded. I then manually changed the
files in /boot/grub, /sbin/grub, /usr/bin/mbchk, but still no luck.

 

I need this GRUB version to boot the L4Linux-fiasco from my hard-drive. 

 

What do I have to do to get my laptop (Pentium M) load this new GRUB?

 

Thanks,

 

Jayesh
