About

The basic function of a boot loader is to load an operating system installed on the computer. When there is more then one operating system installed, we talk about multi-booting.

GRUB2 is now the default boot loader in openSUSE, replacing GRUB Legacy (GRUB versions 0.9x). GRUB2 has more advanced features than GRUB Legacy. GRUB Legacy is still available, but is no longer being actively developed. More information about GRUB2 can be found here.
