"GRUB, the GRand Unified Bootloader, has been the
default boot loader on virtually all Linux distributions since LILO
(LInux LOader) lost its shine. LILO is still an option in only a
handful of distributions (Mandriva is one), but on most, GRUB is
the sole boot loader. GRUB's menu has a very bland interface, and
BURG is an attempt to prettify it, spice it up a bit. BURG is based
on GRUB, and you can say the acronym is derived from GRUB spelled
backwards or cobbled from Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB.
Whatever BURG means,this article will show you how to replace
GRUB with BURG on a running installation of Linux Mint 11 or any
other Debian or Ubuntu-based distribution.
