#3822 new enhancement

Installer should know how to include Haiku in an existing Grub menu

Description

Regarding hrev30372:

It would be extra nice if Installer could figure out if Grub is being used, and add itself to the existing Grub menu.lst file. (Not even all Linux users know how Grub works.)

This depends on Haiku support for Linux filesystem.

Note that on OpenSolaris GRUB uses ZFS filesystem rather than Linux' ext2.

Also note that GRUB may be x86-/amd64-specific since Linux uses yaboot on ppc for instance. Not sure about m68k/arm.

I don't think that this is needed because Haiku already has BootMan. Also GRUB is not standard like EFI so Haiku is not required to support it. If someone want it, it can be implemented as third-party software.
