Multislot is a downstream feature that renames parts of grub-2.x to grub2-* instead of grub-* so that grub-0.x and grub-2.x can be on the system at the same time. My understanding is that it is there to make switching back and forth between grub-0 and grub-2 easier . In my opinion, the better choice is to turn it off. William
