Grub For Arm
GNU GRUB is a Multibootboot loader. It was derived from GRUB, the GRand UnifiedBootloader, which was originally designed and implemented by ErichStefan Boleyn.
Briefly, a boot loader is the first software program that runswhen a computer starts. It is responsible for loading and transferring controlto the operating system kernel software (such as the Hurd or Linux). The kernel, in turn,initializes the rest of the operating system (e.g. GNU).
GRUB 2 has replaced what was formerly known as GRUB (i.e. version 0.9x), which has, in turn, become GRUB Legacy. Enhancements to GRUB are still being made, but the current released versions are quite usable for normal operation.
GRUB Legacy is no longer being developed. For the differences between GRUB Legacy and GRUB, see the Grub Legacy Documentation.
