ATM grub is on a boot floppy, if I'm going to put it on my harddisk it will live in slackware/reiserfs /boot/grub .
I don't want to remove ez-bios (needed by windows), but...grub needs it to boot linux!!!!! Linux itself works fine without ez-bios, but grub wont boot linux without ez-bios...

did you read through the link that said to just let grub think the harddrive is 1094, then you can install slack after that? (in their case they installed suse)

Well they say I should create a partition of ~5mb in the first 1024cylinders. How can I let grub load from there?
