Grub is the bootloader most people will use with Funtoo. Grub is very powerful supporting multiple partition types, filesystems, and operating systems through a modular framework. Grub will generally be installed through the
grub-install script. That script will translate the Linux device node such as
/dev/sda into a Grub device such as
(hd1). This has to be done because Grub will only know about devices that your system's firmware knows about.
