I have looked as far as I can via Google to try to get into a terminal similar to how things were done in grub. There is little to no information available--I was very fluent in how to do things with grub--I am at a loss as to achieve this in grub2.

Hi Vladimir--

I am unclear as to your meaning of "set"----I have defined /dev/sda in console as the grub install to MBR & my /boot is in /dev/sdc1. This is after I installed the .deb from Colin's PPA that included the patch. So I would think that I am using your patched grub2. Please correct me if I have not understood you.
