/dev/hda1 is /boot.

Grub appears to install fine using grub-install (no errors).

After bios loads, the word GRUB appears immediately in the top left corner of
the screen.  This is not the grub> prompt.  It is just the single word GRUB.

I've seen the same thing (different machine and motherboard) but haven't
had chance to investigate.

One thing I did notice was that the bios was saying 255 sectors. There
seemed to be no way to change this in the bios and now way to tell fdisk
that there are more than 255 sectors.

I haven't had chance to try the geometry option to grub (didn't know
about this option when I was trying to get grub working)

(N.B. I've got absolutely no idea if this is really the problem)


God said, "div D = rho, div B = 0, curl E = - @B/@t, curl H = J + @D/@t,"
and there was light.
