To Install Burg:

  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/burg sudo apt-get update 
  sudo apt-get install burg burg-themes

Now to make BURG integrate the HardDisk enter the following command in terminal:

  sudo burg-install "(hd0)"

Remember to substitute ‘hd0′ with the drive on which your MBR is installed.

Now update burg:

  sudo update-burg

Finally, run the following to test and set your theme:

 sudo burg-emu


Press F2 To change theme .

Press F3 to change resolution

If you want to use another easy way to configue burg, you need to install Burg- manager, for this check our previuos post.
