Finally took the plunge and tried fbinst. The 'formatting' part has gone perfectly. Boots from USB thumb drive OK. FbinstTool
shows Fbinst menu as:
default 0 timeout 0 text "F1. grldr" menu F1 grldr "grldr"and Grldr Menu as
pxe detect configfile default 0 timeout 1 title find /menu.lst, /boot/grub/menu.lst, /grub/menu.lst ...
What I want to know is where do I place my menu.lst file ? Basically how do I use g4d with a fbinst formatted USB thumb drive ?
