Invoking grub-install

   The program `grub-install' installs GRUB on your drive by the grub
shell (Note: Invoking the grub shell). You must specify the device
name on which you want to install GRUB, like this:

     grub-install INSTALL_DEVICE

   The device name INSTALL_DEVICE is an OS device name or a GRUB device

   `grub-install' accepts the following options:

     Print a summary of the command-line options and exit.

     Print the version number of GRUB and exit.

     Force GRUB to use LBA mode even for a buggy BIOS. Use this option
     only if your BIOS doesn't work in LBA mode even though it supports
     LBA mode.

     Install GRUB images under the directory DIR instead of the root
     directory. This option is useful when you want to install GRUB
     into a separate partition or a removable disk. Here is an example
     when you have a separate "boot" partition which is mounted on

          grub-install --root-directory=/boot '(hd0)'

     Use FILE as the grub shell. You can append arbitrary options to
     FILE after the file name, like this:

          grub-install --grub-shell="grub --read-only" /dev/fd0

     Recheck the device map, even if `/boot/grub/' already
     exists. You should use this option whenever you add/remove a disk
     into/from your computer.
