below is how I managed to use bootlace.  I was unable to get anything else to work to install grub4dos to a hard drive with linux.

I started with grub4dos version 0.4.4.  this link works 1jun2016.  
https://sourceforge....grub4dos 0.4.4/
used file manager to extract files to desktop.  one of the files is named 'bootlace.com'  I want to install it to /dev/hdb
in the terminal:

sudo su

cd Desktop

./bootlace.com /dev/hdb

in case of permission error message:

sudo chmod 0777 bootlace.com

extra info.
to place grldr in root:
it should also be on desktop

sudo su

cd Desktop

cp grldr /

any expertise and info is much appreciated.

Oh noes, not again. :(


The sourceforge page (for a number of reasons) has been ABANDONED since 7 (SEVEN) years AND the 0.4.4 version there is NOT a "good" one, as it still has a NUMBER of BUGS (besides the lack of a number of commands added only later).


The ONLY 0.4.4 version of grub4dos that should be used is a later one, grub4dos-0.4.4-2009-10-16 (AND NOT ANY other one).


BUT nowadays one should get a MUCH later version of the 0.4.5 or 0.4.6 from Chenall's page:
