I'm enthusiasted from grub, but there are several problems. My first problem
how to access drives from grub. Grub does it by referring to bios-mappings.
think this way is fault-prone, because the bios-mapping is unpredictable, so
nobody knows what drive 0x81 really is.
I think the right way is to go over the controllers. There are several
controllers in the computer, from wich you can boot like ide, scsi, raid,
network. So at first you must specify the controller, from wich you want to
boot. Eg: boot from 3. Partition of 4. Drive of ide-controller that is in
slot 2
of the first pci-bus in the system. I think it is enough, when grub only can
boot from devices, that are connected to the first pci-bus. So a command
listdevices may be useful.
