Installing grub on debian

Debian/Grub mini-howto

One of the main advantage of Grub lies in the fact that it provides directly at boot time a tiny shell that makes emergency booting easier. It knows how to read natively an important number of filesystem including FAT, ext2, ext3, reiserfs .... This point is crucial since it removes the needs for running grub (as it is the case for LILO), each times you want to try a brand new kernel. You can even not touch its configuration file, thanks to the shell at boot time.
