I got thinking booting off a logical partition might not be allowed, so I
changed the LEAF/Bering logical partition to a primary, hda4.  Then I ran
"syslinux d:" from a Win98SE DOS-box to (try to) initialize the
partition's boot record.  And added this from a DOS/Windows example to

title LEAF/Bering via syslinux
        hide (hd0,0)
        unhide (hd0,3)
        rootnoverify (hd0,3)
        chainloader +1

But the boot failed in grub.  I'm also going the path of making grub boot
LEAF-Bering directly, and I seem to have that part-way to working.
