Boot with GRUB
As is typical of GNU software, GRUB is rich with capabilities beyond what are described here. Some of these include:
Remapping disks and partition hiding, so you can even run multiple versions of DOS/Windows, on other than the first hard disk.
Network booting with BOOTP and DHCP protocols, to support multiboot schemes across a network and diskless operation.
Keyboard remapping, disk geometry access, memory reading, I/O port and processor probes, password protection, decompression support, etc.
See the GNU information manual for more information on these topics. GRUB is under active development, and even more features are planned for future releases.
In this brave GNU world, with vast acreage of cheap hard disk and a glut of great free OSes available, you really need a flexible and user-friendly boot loader to manage them all. Grab GRUB and give it a go.
