This is GNU GRUB, the GRand Unified Bootloader.  GRUB is intended to
provide important bootloader features that are missing from typical
personal computer BIOSes:

  - provides fully-featured command line and graphical interfaces
  - recognizes fdisk partitions and BSD disklabels
  - can dynamically read Linux ext2fs, ReiserFS, JFS and XFS, BSD ufs,
    MS-DOS FAT16 and FAT32, Minix fs, and VSTa fs filesystems, plus
    hardcoded blocklists
  - can boot Multiboot-compliant kernels (such as GNU Mach), as well
    as standard Linux and *BSD kernels

See the file NEWS for a description of recent changes to GRUB.

If you are interested in the network support, see the file
README.netboot under the directory netboot.

See the file INSTALL for instructions on how to build and install the
GRUB data and program files. See the GRUB manual for details about
using GRUB as your boot loader. Type "info grub" in the shell prompt.
