OK, thanks, what parameters should i stick in there? I thought my bootdevice should be /dev/cciss/c0d0p1, but grub refuses to complete (GRUB-PC/10-setup says so )
so, I echoed "BOOT_DEVICE=/dev/cciss/c0d0p1" to that disk_var.sh script.
after setup finished I switch to another console and try to re-do the grub tricks from GRUB-PC/10-setup...
chroot /target grub-install --no-floppy "(hd0,msdos1)" failed with:
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Attemting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is dicouraged..
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: error: if you really want blocklists, use --force.
also tried to put it in /dev/ccisss/c0d0 but that fails with "Your embedding area is unusually smal./ core.img won't fit on it...
thanks for any more help.
