Missed this for rc1, but should make it into 2011.12 final.

boot-info-script is in Debian testing/sid. We have to delay this until after the 
package-list/flavour discussion. :-/
msg3978 (view) Author: ch Date: 2011-10-14.10:48:24
boot-info-script is in Debian NEW. Waiting for this.
msg3841 (view) Author: HansBKK Date: 2011-06-05.02:52:37
That was me, so don't count this as a +1 8-)

It's a great tool for diagnosing a very wide range of boot loader issues;
includes support for the more recent GRUBs coming along, regularly updated.

Currently included in Parted Magic (and thereby Ultimate Boot CD)

Not sure about whether SysRescCD has done so or not.
