    Try typing
    find /boot/grub/menu.lst
    is it found ... if it is found (lets say it returns (hd0,1) then try
    root (hd0,1)
    This should bring up the grub menu for you. If the file is not found then try find /boot/grub/grub.conf instead.
    I have not done a yoper install so I'm not sure what potential there is to install grub without a menu file.

    I don't think you will find much difference between them to be honest. You will probably find Arch an easier and quicker install.

    Boot up Yoper, open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
    root (hd0,1)
    setup (hd0)
    Reboot machine. You must have root privileges to execute above code.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
