I've been working on grub.texi and I notice a reference to I will change that to
grub-2-faq.en.html before I submit it.

I think we should come up with a new list of FAQs here and agree on the answers. I'll be glad to format it.

The current questions are:

Why do you need to rewrite GRUB?
What is the status of GRUB 2?

I would remove both of these and and start with:

I have questions about GRUB2!
What operating systems does GRUB2 support?
What hardware platforms does GRUB2 support?
How does GRUB2 differ from GRUB Legacy (GRUB1)?
How do I create a GRUB2 boot floppy?
How do I create a GRUB2 boot CD-ROM?

How are partitions specified? That seems to be very different from the notation in my operating system...

How do I uninstall GRUB2 from my hard disk drive?
I installed GRUB, but it just hangs up. What now?

What others would you suggest?

By the way, says grub-2-faq.en.html has 24 errors, but that cascades errors. I only see 5 errors. I imagine the page is formatted by a standard header + body + standard footer, but there is one html error in the header too:

alt="image of the Head of a GNU" width="129" height"122" />

height is missing an = sign.
