8.1.6 Setting GRUB boot parameters

GRUB is a new boot manager from the GNU Hurd project and is much more flexible than Lilo but has slightly different handling of boot parameters.

     grub> find /vmlinuz
     grub> root (hd0,0)
     grub> kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1
     grub> initrd /initrd
     grub> boot

Here, you must be aware of the Hurd device names:

     the Hurd/GRUB       Linux               MSDOS/Windows
      (fd0)               /dev/fd0            A:
      (hd0,0)             /dev/hda1           C: (usually)
      (hd0,3)             /dev/hda4           F: (usually)
      (hd1,3)             /dev/hdb4           ?

See /usr/share/doc/grub/README.Debian and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/html/ for details.
