GRUB2 is now part of the cygwin distribution.
GRUB2 is a portable powerful bootloader. This new version of GRUB
is based on a cleaner design than its predecessors.
The package contains an experimental version of GRUB2. It is based
on a recent snapshot from upstream CVS. I have added some fixes
which allow to build and run the GRUB2 support tools on Cygwin, and
also allow to build the native bootloader binaries on Cygwin.
