NAME
       installgrub - install GRUB in a disk partition or a floppy

SYNOPSIS
       /sbin/installgrub [-fm] stage1 stage2 raw-device

       The installgrub command is an -only program. GRUB stands	for GRand Uni-
       fied Bootloader.

       installgrub installs GRUB stage 1 and stage 2 files on the boot area of
       a  disk	partition.  If you specify the -m option, installgrub installs
       the stage 1 file	on the master boot sector of the disk.

       The installgrub command accepts the following options:

       -f

	   Suppresses interaction when overwriting the master boot sector.

       -m

	   Installs GRUB stage1	on the master boot sector interactively.

       The installgrub command accepts the following operands:

       stage1

	   The name of the GRUB	stage 1	file.

       stage2

	   The name of the GRUB	stage 2	file.

       raw-device

	   The name of the device onto which GRUB code is to be	installed.  It
	   must	 be a character	device that is readable	and writable. For disk
	   devices, specify the	slice where the	GRUB  menu  file  is  located.
	   (For	 Solaris  it  is  the  root  slice.)  For a floppy disk, it is
	   /dev/rdiskette.

       Example 1: Installing GRUB on a Hard Disk Slice

       The following command installs GRUB on a	system where the root slice is
       c0d0s0:

       example#	/sbin/installgrub /boot/grub/stage1 \
		/boot/grub/stage2 /dev/rdsk/c0d0s0

       Example 2: Installing GRUB on a Floppy

       The following command installs GRUB on a	formatted floppy:

       example#	mount -F pcfs /dev/diskette /mnt
       # mkdir -p /mnt/boot/grub
       # cp /boot/grub/* /mnt/boot/grub
       # umount	/mnt
       # cd /boot/grub
       # /sbin/installgrub stage1 stage2 /dev/rdiskette

       /boot/grub

	   Directory where GRUB	files reside.

       boot(1M), fdisk(1M), fmthard(1M), kernel(1M), attributes(5)

       Installing  GRUB	 on  the  master boot sector (-m option) overrides any
       boot manager currently installed	on the machine.	The system will	always
       boot the	GRUB in	the Solaris partition regardless of which fdisk	parti-
       tion is active.
