How to obtain and build GRUB

     *Caution:* GRUB requires binutils-2.9.1.0.23 or later because the
     GNU assembler has been changed so that it can produce real 16bits
     machine code between 2.9.1 and 2.9.1.0.x. See
     `http://sources.redhat.com/binutils/', to obtain information on
     how to get the latest version.
   GRUB is available from the GNU alpha archive site
`ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/grub' or any of its mirrors. The file will be
named grub-version.tar.gz. The current version is 0.94, so the file you
should grab is:
   `ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/grub/grub-0.94.tar.gz'
   To unbundle GRUB use the instruction:
     zcat grub-0.94.tar.gz | tar xvf -
   which will create a directory called `grub-0.94' with all the
sources. You can look at the file `INSTALL' for detailed instructions
on how to build and install GRUB, but you should be able to just do:
     cd grub-0.94
     ./configure
     make install
   This will install the grub shell `grub' (*note Invoking the grub
shell::), the Multiboot checker `mbchk' (*note Invoking mbchk::), and
the GRUB images. This will also install the GRUB manual.
   Also, the latest version is available from the CVS. See
`http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=grub' for more information.
