Any Grub programmers out there?



As an addendum to my bootabe USB drive issue, I have a few issues with Grub which handles the boot loaders. Unfortunately, as with much of the Open Source world, documentation can be a little light on.

Does anyone know how to find a file and store the location to a memory variable and then parse it to the map function?

Do you know how to drop out of the Grub menu to a command prompt? That may allow me to play with the solution to question 1.

Alternatively, you can reach the GRUB command line during bootup. When the GRUB menu loads, press C on the keyboard.
