Invoking grub-install

   The program `grub-install' installs GRUB on your drive using the
grub shell (*note Invoking the grub shell::). You must specify the
device name on which you want to install GRUB, like this:
     grub-install INSTALL_DEVICE
   The device name INSTALL_DEVICE is an OS device name or a GRUB device
name.
   `grub-install' accepts the following options:
`--help'
     Print a summary of the command-line options and exit.
`--version'
     Print the version number of GRUB and exit.
`--force-lba'
     Force GRUB to use LBA mode even for a buggy BIOS. Use this option
     only if your BIOS doesn't work properly in LBA mode even though it
     supports LBA mode.
`--root-directory=DIR'
     Install GRUB images under the directory DIR instead of the root
     directory. This option is useful when you want to install GRUB
     into a separate partition or a removable disk. Here is an example
     in which you have a separate "boot" partition which is mounted on
     `/boot':
          grub-install --root-directory=/boot hd0
`--grub-shell=FILE'
     Use FILE as the grub shell. You can append arbitrary options to
     FILE after the file name, like this:
          grub-install --grub-shell="grub --read-only" /dev/fd0
`--recheck'
     Recheck the device map, even if `/boot/grub/device.map' already
     exists. You should use this option whenever you add/remove a disk
     into/from your computer.
