burg - Brand-new Universal loadeR from GRUB

Normal install

Here are the steps to install BURG using PPA package from launchpad.
1. Insert these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bean123ch/burg/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bean123ch/burg/ubuntu lucid main
You should replace lucid with the correct code name. Currently the following release are supported: jaunty (9.04), karmic (9.10), lucid (10.04), maverick (10.10).
And install burg and related themes using these commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install burg
If you want to avoid the warning about unknown signature, use these commands to import it:
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 55708F1EE06803C5
gpg --export --armor 55708F1EE06803C5 | sudo apt-key add -
Then, install burg to MBR with the following command:
sudo burg-install /dev/sda
sudo update-burg
Change hd0 if you want to install to other disk.
2. Edit configuration file /etc/default/burg
For the latest version, you don't need to modify /etc/default/burg at all. If you upgrade from previous version, it's recommended to change the setting of GRUB_THEME and GRUB_FOLD to:
