I test the Grub2 on iMac G3, following the howto available at http:// .

Here are some comment i wish useful :

* even if i set boot-device to hd,2:grubof.modules, i have to manually type "boot" at the OF prompt to have grub loaded. else, the screen keep gray.

 * as grub version is 1.93, i fill grub.cfg with

timeout 5
menuentry "Linux" {
    linux (hd,2)/boot/vmlinux root=/dev/hda3
    initrd (hd,2)/boot/initrd.img

But then, i have a kernel panic because it do not find root.

I can boot linux with the (great) grub console by typing :

grub> linux (hd,2)/boot/vmlinux root=/dev/hda3
grub> initrd (hd,2)/boot/initrd.img
grub> boot

* The menu does not use the whole screen, only the top left corner. That's strange.

Wish that helps.
