Installboot as in the Solaris command that would install the solaris bootsectors? Yes, there are a number of options it depends on what you're trying to accomplish. GRUB is the most common linux boot loader if you're trying to repair a linux box that won't boot. Can you be more specific about the issue you're having or task you're trying to accomplish?
