Just like Bug #14010 but not just for JFS. GRUB will fail to install during setup when it is being installed to a partition (as opposed to a boot sector) formatted as anything but ext2/3fs, including JFS and ReiserFS. TEST CASE: 1. use the ubuntu 8.04.3 alternate installer in expert mode to configure your root filesystem as JFS 2. tell grub to install to the root partition instead of to the disk. 3. confirm that grub installation fails. 4. use the ubuntu 8.04.4 alternate installer candidate in expert mode to configure your root filesystem as JFS 5. tell grub to install to the root partition instead of to the disk. 6. verify that grub installation succeeds.
