If you put it after the remapping commands, would you have to change
the drive used from hd1,0 to hd0,0, or does GRUB pay any attention
to the remapping commands when executing its own commands? I have
looked in the info pages for GRUB, and I have not found it. I
suspect that the order of the commands does not matter...
