Also, has anyone any idea of setting a dedicated grub partition using 
grub2? How do you setup this partition to boot up equivalent to grub 
legacy "root (hd0,x) --> setup (hd0)"?
I cannot make it work through the grub commands, must it be done only 
through the main linux shell?
In other words....

gohlip at computername:~$.... only?
