Bumped up to 1.98.  Closer, but still not quite working.

    grub> ls

    grub> insmod ext2
    grub> insmod biosdisk
    grub> ls -lh
    Device hd0: Partition table
    Device fd0: Unknown filesystem
    Device pxe: Filesystem type pxefs

    grub> ls (hd0,1)/
    error: no such partition.
    grub> chainloader (hd0,1)+1
    error: no such partition.

I'm pretty sure I've got the right partition numbering.  (This is a
VirtualBox tester.)

    # fdisk -l
    Disk /dev/hda: 32.2 GB, 32212254720 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3916 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/hda1   *           1          16      128488+  83  Linux
    /dev/hda2              17        3916    31326750   8e  Linux LVM

Are my expectations correct with what I'm trying to do here?  Are there
other modules I should be loading via insmod first?

I can't find any info out there on this specific PXE stuff with grub2.
I humbly offer writing up some wiki content in trade for getting this
working. :)
