Linpus lite grub/booting linpus to a terminal
 
Hi all, this is my first post on LQ.

I have an Aspire one (8GB, Linpus) and I am wondering how to edit the grub.conf file so I can have the options to.

1. Boot my AA1 to a linpus terminal on start up.
2. Tell grub to boot a distro from an external usb drive.
3. Get grub to display it's GUI screen on startup.

I'm not even sure if all of the above is possible, but any help would be awesome! I have just re-installed linpus on my AA1 so I am starting with a clean slate.

my current grub.conf file is,


default=0
timeout=0
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu

title Linpus Linux RCD

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage ro root=LABEL=linpus vga=0x311 splash=silent loglevel=1 console=tty1 quiet
initrd /boot/initrd-splash.img

Thanks.
