Description of problem:
Please add grub-install to the system that results from booting the install
CD-ROM with "linux rescue".  I really missed grub-install yesterday when I
expected to use it.

If the functionality is subsumed by something else, then please put in a shell
script something like:

cat <<!EOF!
See http://... [direct, specific link to grub manual+guide]

The most common rescue usage is something like
    $ grub
    (grub) ... [give specific commands for installing on /dev/hda,
                and on current /dev/hdb for later use as /dev/hda]

exit 1   # this was not the real grub-install, so do not succeed
which can fit into a small number of bytes, yet be very helpful.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot CD-ROM #1 with "linux rescue"
2.Try to invoke grub-install.

Actual Results:  bash: grub-install: command not found

Expected Results:  grub-install invoked.

You have to run grub-install from inside your chroot for it to work correctly
(ie, chroot /mnt/sysimage as instructed and then you can run grub-install and
have it work sanely)
