quick and dirty guide on installing GRUB

Well for the Debian addicted among you, you could do apt-get install grub and then follow the rest of this. Hard disk partitions need of course be adjusted to your configuration. Remember: this is just a small guide ... if you need more help regarding that topic just post here!
installed grub
	cp -pr /usr/lib/grub/i386-pc/ /boot/grub/
	grub --no-floppy
		find /grub/stage1
		root (hd2,5)
		setup (hd0)

	creating a /boot/grub/menu.lst
		color 		light-gray/blue yellow/brown
		default		0
		fallback	0
		password	--md5 your_md5_hashed_pw_here
		timeout		5

		title Debian 3.0r1 (Debian Kernel)
			root (hd2,5)
			kernel (hd2,5)/vmlinuz-2.4.18-bf2.4 root=/dev/hdd5
Maybe you want to check out the base thread ? :-)
