quit is utility only.  install/setup works in grub too, and in fact it
was the only way to install grub to disk in the very early grub days:
First "cat stage1 stage2 > /dev/fd0", then boot from the floppy, then
install grub on the hard disk.

For pvgrub install/setup that doesn't make sense at all because it isn't
BIOS-loaded from the guest hard disk in the first place.  You have to
pass in the path to the config file via
extra="(hd0,0)/boot/grub/menu.lst" to make it display a menu though.
