Of course, a full update would be a very good thing, and I hope Randy gets the go-ahead to do one.

Whether or not an update occurs, I would suggest that patches have a place on the grub ftp site, as the official releases will always fall behind the newest hardware. An "unsupported patches" directory, with a use-at-your-own-risk policy, would be a useful source for adminstrators looking to use grub with their newest toys, and would encourage the submission of code and ideas which may be useful to the grub maintainers.

I enclose a patch which adds e1000 support to grub 0.93, using code from the etherboot sources.

Thanks, but I prefer updating all drivers to just adding one driver.

If nobody wants to do that, I would have to do that myself. Ummh.
