Um, that being said, it does not hurt to re-run grub to
make sure that the proper bootloader installed on the MBR.
This might be necessary if you recently changed partitions
around, or perhaps if you installed a new O/S on *any* of
your partitions (the install process might have written over
the MBR). I believe the original post said that he recently
I think the command you want is "grub-install" and not
simply "grub". "grub-install" reads the menu.lst file and
writes the stage1 loader to the MBR. "grub" simply pops
up a grub command prompt and waits for you to enter the
arcane grub commands.
