GRUB2 (the GRand Unified Bootloader) is a multiboot boot loader.

If you want to set the size of gfxterm font, then specify
FONT_SIZE=size in the build options. The default size is 19.

If you want to install grub2 on GPT, you need to put a BIOS boot
partition on GPT. To install it in the MBR replacing lilo, generate
a config file in /boot/grub and launch grub-install, e.g.

mkdir /boot/grub
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
grub-install /dev/sda

This requires: gnu-unifont, os-prober, help2man
