Only being able to boot in to one of the two OSes I run is a deal breaker. It's back to Yaboot for me.

I have successfully installed grub2 and can boot into linux.

I have been unable to work-out how to boot in to MacOSX. When trying to use chainloader I get the following error message.

Booting 'MacOSX'
error: unknown command `chainloader'
Press any key to continue...

Hi Aaron, unfortunately grub2 does not yet support booting Mac OS X. I
was working on a loader for it a while back, but didn't get it working
and haven't touched it in a while. You can look for the patches in the
archives if you're interested in taking a look.
