Well, hum, it doesn't look hard at all, in fact, at least a simple
version. See attached patch (untested, but what could possibly go
wrong?!). I'm not subscribed to anaconda-patches-list ATM, but CCing
anaconda-devel-list to see what the anaconda devs think. I think it's
reasonable to install a config file and device.map when 'skipping'
grub2-bios bootloader install, especially given our standing advice to
people who want to do chainload-style multi boot is "skip bootloader
installation then setup configfile booting after install".



FWIW, I do part of what the patch does without the device.map part by
going to tty2 and then chroot to the installed system and manually
install grub where I want it and then create the appropriate grub config
files.

Yes, that's what I'm trying to avoid. Telling people they have to do
that seems quite silly. :)


For goodness sake, of course not! Just a proof of concept for something that can be included in the installer like your patch.
