Actually i want to use grub..... becoz so that users who want to use the
storage devices in the thick client can boot via grub.....
grub has a possibility for booting via pxe
i have tried pxe grub
it works
but now i want to use the gfxboot

any idea anyone?

LiFe is "just tryin out things to see if they work"
