Your all trying to avoid the truth. As I have already said info grub is a lousy way to learn to USE grub. I tried and failed and so have many
others.

What I want is a 15-30 page paper that explains how you use grub. It might point back to info grub for a thing or two but it stands on it's own.

   What I have seen to this time is people trying to avoid the
question. It is not working.

The first one is more detailed.  I suspect neither will be what you
want.  What it tells me is that most people either want the full meal
deal (the 90+ page grub manual), or a short guide (1-2 pages cut to
the chase type of guide).  Or perhaps more accurately those who've
taken the time to write a guide didn't see the need to elaborate much
beyond a few pages.  If someone is going to take the time (and has the
desire) to go through a 30 page guide because they want to better
understand grub, then they'll just as likely go through the grub
manual and pick out the 25-50 pages from it that they see as relevant
to their situation or of personal interest.  Why write a guide that is
1/3 of the full manual for the very few who find that a 2-3 page guide
is not sufficient but the full guide is too much.

Thank you. The first URL is what I am looking for. It is written for SUSE and UBUNTO but it is the same grub. And it is just a little too short but it covers all the things I wanted.

  I will put it in my saved things.

You might try this page as well:

Excellent Bill. I am surprised that both well written grub tutorials were done by guys using Ubuntu Linux. And using this other Linux makes some of the teaching incorrect if your using Fedora. In our /boot/grub/ we have grub.conf. They do not. But they do have menu.lst which is ok. Also they do their grub.conf different than we do. His pictures are a lot better than the other on.
