Grub is an easy and powerful bootloader that can boot Linux, BSD, Windows, and many other operating systems. Unfortunately its documentation is less than stellar. That's where Grub Grotto comes in.

Grub From the Ground Up

This is where you learn the theory and simple practice of grub. It explains the concept of "root" from the grub perspective and from the linux perspective, and the fact that they are not the same. This page is a prerequisite to all other grub related pages on Troubleshooters.Com.

Grub Special Boots and Other Tips

This page discusses the grub configuration for dual booting.
