How does a standard Linux install, e.g. Fedora 7, determine whether stage1
grub in the MBR transfer control to stage1_5 or directly to stage2?  Is
stage1_5 always used in standard Linux installs?
I suppose that a standard installation run grub-install command which
runs the root and setup commands. The setup command has an algorithm
like this:

If I can embed stage1_5 after the mbr then set the config so that stage1
tranfers to stage1_5 and then to stage2.

If you want the MBR to transfer to stage2 directly you can rename the
*_stage1_5 files in /boot/grub and in /lib/grub and run the root and
setup commands manually. (Or maybe grub-install may work, I do not know.)
