[TriLUG] Mondo users?

Sorry. When no one replied I thought that no one was interested. It is
a grub-install problem. Rerunning mondo in Interactive mode and
selecting *only* initialize boot loader resolved the problem.
Apparently when mondo restores to a blank drive, grub-install sometimes
fails. Since the 2500s were not blank, not a problem.
Yes, all of the 2400s are at the current BIOS and firmware levels. We
did work with Dell on this. The other was just a mondo/grub-install
cloning problem. Thanks for your help. I do appreciate it.
