#3822 new enhancement
Installer should know how to include Haiku in an existing Grub menu
|Reported by:||jonas.kirilla||Owned by:||korli|
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.

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.
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
Note that on OpenSolaris GRUB uses ZFS filesystem rather than Linux' ext2.
Also note that GRUB may be x86-/amd64-specific since Linux uses
yabooton ppc for instance. Not sure about m68k/arm.
