Comment 1 Justin Churchey 2003-07-25 21:17:16 EDT
Actually got the splash screen to come up.  I installed GRUB to the MBR rather
than the first sector of the boot partition, which is what I usually do because
I have a Windows NT-based OS on the same HD, and that is what is recommended by
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-07-29 12:25:50 EDT
So I understand - everything works fine if you install GRUB to the MBR?
Comment 3 Justin Churchey 2003-08-01 00:46:21 EDT
Yes, the problem appears to happen when GRUB is installed to the first sector of
the /boot partition, but it works fine when installed to the MBR.

Does this still happen with test3?
