    Debian 6 uses definitely Grub 2 by default (on x86/x64: package: grub-pc). It is much more powerful than the older Grub 1. Red Hat is using Grub 1 patched for ext4 - the needed patch was available since years but basically why should somebody still use the legacy version? You officially do not get any support for it.

      Well, I use Grub-legacy because...well, because it boots my system just fine. I don't need support for ext4 nor anything fancy. Anyway, I take it that there are no problems nor nasty little surprises with upgrading to Grub 2, yes? This is, I expect that it won't demand my attention like, at all, if I install the new version...

        Did Debian bother updating grub 2 to a version that isn't overwritten by certain windows programs?
