         Reproducibility: None
         Planned Release: 



With GNU Grub 0.97, while I was attempting to install Grub on a loopback
device, it failed to embed e2fs_stage1_5 onto the loopback device, so it
embedded it onto my hard drive instead, and prevented my computer from

# losetup /dev/loop0 floppy.img
# grub
grub> device (fd0) /dev/loop0
grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (fd0)
(checking whether some files exist, can't remember exactly which ones)
Running "embed /grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (fd0)"... failed (this is not fatal)
Running "embed /grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd0,0)"... failed (this is not fatal)
<----- This should not have happened
Running "install (some parameters)"... successful
grub> quit
# losetup -d /dev/loop0
