Inspired by my own problems, in a seIfish way, I would suggest "Grub2 and RAID" + section 3.8.
Also, I think sections 2.2.5 and 2.2.6 could take a bit of a touch-up, or extension, if you will. Especially the last sentence of 2.2.6. IMHO, the real thing is to be able to do everything from scratch. If the how-tos are explained  a bit more, a better understanding of other related subjects becomes  possible.

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.
