I am testing grub2 on Soerkis net4801 (x86, geode, serial only, booting
from flash).

The documentation is pretty bad and grub-install is half broken
(will perhaps fix it, when I've time).

grub-setup's --help is confusing, it does not tell the user that
the images will be changed. 

Serial console works at 38400 (others untested).

Though, reprinting the screen / drawing characters is pretty slow,
backspace does not work (using picocom).

You can find my log at

Oh, btw, it's HIGHLY confusing that disks start at 0, partitions at
1. Could you please fix it and make it consequently? either hd1,1
or hd0,0, but not hd0,1 or hd1,0.

And I would be interested, whether there's some effort to port
grub2 to hppa? I don't like palo very much I must confess.
