User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7+) Gecko/20020118

Description of problem:
In patch grub-0.90-symlinkmenulst.patch /boot/grub is hardcoded.
This should be $grubdir.
Otherwise it fails for users with a boot partition.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.91 (and before)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have a seperate boot partiton, and create /boot/boot/grub/menu.lst
2.run grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/hda 

Actual Results:  No grub.conf symlink in /boot/boot/grub, therefore no menu

Expected Results:  Symlink

Additional info: (correct patch)
