If there is any documentation of anything, anywhere, yet more
opaque than all I've read of grub, I shudder to think of it. It's
written, like a classic gummint manual, for those who already know
everything in it, cold, and want an occasional reminder. Those of us
lacking such knowledge, it merely daunts.

The project site, for instance at http://www.gnu.org/software/
grub/grub-2-support.en.html, was last updated a little over a year and a
half ago; stability was hoped for as of November '06. Did that come to
pass?? Or is it still an invitation to disaster for mere mortals?
