I'm thinking to install Ubuntu on my laptop just to have grub in order to boot from the EISA partition. What do you think? Do you think that might be a good idea? How will affect grub or ubuntu the EISA partition ?

what's your laptop brand ? if you've any driver and some stuffs(for Win), you could take advantages of grub. but I think it won't be quite easy. Take a look at this article linuxjournal.com/article/4622 –  Ye Lin Aung Apr 3 '10 at 17:24
@mgpyone that article is SUPER old (2001) and doesn't really help too much today. GRUB2 will be a straight forward install and works well as a bootloader. Personally I get rid of those extra partitions, as they are just a waste of space. –  Urda Apr 3 '10 at 20:08
