I supposed I should send-pr this, but I thought I would ask first to
make sure it wasn't already discussed.
In the Grub MESSAGE file there is a suggestion like this:
GRUB is not actually installed on your disk until you run a command
If you have a floppy drive (and it is empty) this command can take
nearly 15 minutes while it keeps trying to read the floppy. I was
doing this remotely and thought my hardware was hosed. It took me
some time to notice the errors logging to dmesg / console.
Might I suggest 'grub-install --no-floppy /dev/wd0d' as an example instead?
It should be fairly obvious to someone that is installing Grub to a
floppy that they need to remove the --no-floppy AND change wd0d
