I had similar experiences with FC3 on an Opteron/Tyan box and with
FC4 on a P4 system on an Intel mobo. grub segfaulted when I tried
to do 'grub> setup' operations. I moaned to this list and to the
grub developers but no responses. I also moaned that grub was not
available in rescue mode, and I too resorted to Knoppix.
