I should have been more specific.
I suspect that module is the grub1 equivalent of insmod,
but load_video, set and even linux stump me.
The grub1 info manual doesn't give me much n the way of suspects.
In the case of linux, I strongly suspect that there is one.
I've often been told to type linux <options> at a boot: prompt.
