BURG (say good bye to GRUB)

BURG stands for Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB. It's based on GRUB, and add features like new object format and configurable menu system.

For Ubuntu 11.04 users, add the following PPA :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg
Then use the following command to download and install the loader, themes and emulator:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install burg
During the installation, it should ask you to write the new boot loader to MBR. If you skip that step, you can later use the following command to update MBR of hd0:
sudo burg-install "(hd0)"
