Sure.  I'm gonna send it to patches, too, since the one there does
fail on 0.97.  I can't remember if it's needed for 0.96 or not.  I got
the patch from gentoo, but the graphics one is pretty much exactly the
same between redhat, debian and gentoo.  Some of them add fancier
support in other patches, but the baseline functionality is from the
same code.

A link to the gentoo grub patch set is in the header of the patch, so
you can look at what they've done, too.
