If you want to install GRUB, why not just choosing the chapter
"Installation"? The menu exists for you to choose what you are looking
for quickly. That's the reason why Info is superior.
BTW, could you tell me what you wanted to do with this mail? Do you
want to just criticise us, or, do you want to improve GRUB? If the
latter is yes, talk about a more creative idea, please. I don't need
so many "bad"s. I just want to know how to make things better.
