Hello from Gregg C Levine
Would anyone mind if I comment? Good.
How do I go about downloading the code that makes up GRUB2? To my mind
it's not at all very clear. I can, convince the CVS stores for GRUB
Legacy to download to my Linux box without fail, and have done so on
many occasions, but for GRUB2, I'm confused.

I confess that I found the web pages to be rather confusing at first
