I've been trying to install some grub on my machine, running only Backtrack 5 (from Ubuntu 10.04 I think). It is newly installed. I managed to create a non-root user for it (it isn't trivial for a newbie especially on that distro). Somehow this installation (BackTrack 5 R1 KDE 32bit) doesn't come with a grub boot loader so I read a dozen of forums on "how to install grub / grub2" and try all that were marked as "working" but non of them worked for me. I am trying to accomplish this all day. So please if anyone know how install grub/grub2 in Backtrack5 please help!
P.S. Write me if you need some additional information about my configuration.
