  Ok, how about this?

1. Check if stage1 and stage2 really exist before running the command
install in the command setup. If not, print which file is missing.
2. Add, say, --prefix=DIR into the command setup.
3. If the user doesn't specify the prefix, the command setup looks for
/boot/grub/stage1, and, if not found, then /grub/stage1 automatically.

I guess that this scheme could fix frequently reported problems
(especially in novices). If this sounds good, I'll implement this.
