I think it's even better to integrate it with DriveSetup.

BTW, one might be able to have it recognize GRUB and
allow editing its settings, as an alternative to replacing it.
If the settings format is stable enough, bootman could show a GRUB config panel, with sanity checks. Perhaps
the GRUB version can be figured out somehow. If not,
BootMenu could still allow manual editing of GRUB's menu.lst file as plain text, if the (Linux-) filesystem where it lives is writable. (Or the tweaked file is equal length or
shorter than the original. :))

Nah, it's too much confusion. If someone uses GRUB, he already knows what to do with it. A port of GRUB to Haiku is preferable in this case.
