Hello to all,

  This patch features two argument options grub-install that let you force the stage1 file to be
  linked to stage1_5 files or to force stage1 not to be linked to stage1_5 but to stage2.

  It features an /etc/default/grub file in order to set these same options by an shell variable.

  Grub's setup command features a --stage1_5-not-linked option to force stage1 not to be linked to stage1_5 but to stage2.

  Unfortunately I have not written any documentation like grub.texi or whatever. I actually do not know how
  and where I should write grub-install documentation. grub-install.8 should not written by hand, but then,
  which file should I edit?

  Another problem about the patch is that although it builds ok I have actually not tested it.
  Can anyone please test it for me?

  Finally I have not updated changelog file to write my copyright and changes.

  The patch applies to grub package from Intrepid, I do not know if it will work with Jaunty's grub package.

  Any comment, advice or improvement is welcomed. Let's hope that we can have something optimal in
  two weeks time.
