Re: Grub 2 Basics
10.04 has its 3rd version of grub. Started with 1.97beta4 went to 1.97 and we are now running 1.98.
I would have put in a custom entry for MS.
Os-prober is a dependency for grub of any version. It is more important in the newer versions for sure. It has improved a good bit but it certainly needs a lot more.
I am a long term lover of grub0.97 but I really like the new one even better. The only problem I have with grub-legacy is that it is no longer supported. I hope that grub-common keeps supporting both (that i where your chain loading comment comes from).
