Yes I am booting from the grub-0.90 ext2 image from the grub ftp written to a floppy. I can boot linux fine with the floppy, but can't install grub into the MBR because it corrupts my stripe array. In case it's relevant this is on an Epox 8k7a+ with onboard hpt370a controller. I just updated the bios to release a1a17 from october 17, but grub still won't install nicely. =(
