Nice option.  Much better.  Now I can just ignore anything but the
small boot image and avoid mtools in the run script.  Good idea.

This gets me closer.  I can now at least boot grub but reports that it can't
mount the selected partition to run "(hd0)/test.exe".  When I do a tab
completion following (hd0), it says  "filesystem type unknown, using
whole disk".  I have looked a tteh grub manual and see an explanation of
the message but no clue on how to solve it.

What's the next trick? :(
