I'm hearin the following from a friend of mine tryin to install a home network:

When the computer is turned on, a Dell laptop, the Grub display comes
up but that display is not interactive. The keyboard just beeps. Only
pulling the plug shuts the machine down as a result.

Partitions are created and formatted. The latest version of Puppy is
installed on it. The partition that install is on is flagged bootable.

Grub is installed, but not configured.

Was unable to understand the config file... Config off the Puppy live
CD or open a terminal session and say "Grub"?

Any thoughts folks? :)
