For the ones who want to learn everything about Grub: there is a great, extensive manual available on http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/html_node/

GRUB is fantastic, but unless a distro steps up to make it replace the standard BIOS, it will remain in the shadows...

GRUB is a boot loader, that is a software that is written on the harddrive - usually on the master boot record of the harddrive(MBR).- so it is not supposed to replace a BIOS, which is a firmware embedded in a writeable chip.
A free replacement of the proprietary BIOSes is in active developpment OpenBIOS, and I will use it as soon it is mature enough.

I know theres a difference, I'm saying without replacing the proprietary BIOS our efforts with GRUB won't be complete. That is, a distro must control the manufacturing process, something not even Canonical has done.
