    what would be meant by <primary_disk> in /dev/<primary_disk> ?

    im trying to follow the instructions @ http://lfscript.org/docs/installing.htm

    i get to #7

    Then set up Grub in the chroot environment: chroot ./rootfs grub-install /dev/<primary_disk>

    what is <primary_disk>?

    this is my partition layout?

    Code:
    helen@scruffy-ubunntu:~# fdisk -ls
