    Actually, it is called grub2 - at least in synaptic there is one but grub-pc gets installed with it. So it might be just a "link name" to the other package.
    HOWEVER, what I meant is that neither grub2, nor grub-pc was installed but grub (grub1). So when the kernel updates run and they called update-grub, it was looking for a menu.lst as it was the grub1 configuration utility.

    That is an interesting site and although I generally am not "into" eye candy I think I'll play with this when I return from vacation.

    The main reason for this post is to suggest you open a new thread along the lines of "Grub 2 Theming" or such. Although theming is still in development in G2, BURG appears to be a nice step and I'm sure many users would be interested in exploring it and other ways to enhance their Grub 2 menus.

    Re: Grub 2 Basics

    I am trying to set up a computer for someone that isn't very computer savvy, and I've set it up to dual boot so they boot to Windows for games (with all easy icon access to web browsers removed) and boot to Ubuntu for everything else.

    Everything seems good--I've gotten it down to two entries (grub_disable_linux_uuid=true and sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86+), but I can't seem to find a way to edit how those entries will show up on the menu.

    When I look at the documentation, the entry for "GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR" is supposed to affect the name, but right now it says "echo Debian'" but it doesn't show up in the menu as Debian, it shows as "Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic" and the windows entry shows up as "Microsoft Windows XP Professional (on /dev/sda1)".

    I'm wanting the Ubuntu entry to simply show as "Internet and Email" and the Windows entry to show up as "Games"--I want it to be really simple for the person I'm setting this computer up for.

    Is this possible to do?

This works until one of the kernels or grub upgrades, then it still insists to install itself on sda1 and sda2. I clearly do not want it on sda1 on these two machines and can't seem to prevent that.

    Help?

    I have talked to the devs about similar issues. One thing that might apply to your situation is that if Ubuntu is installed on sdb it may still install Grub 2 on sda. They consider it a bug.

    In your situation, do you know which drive boots first? If you change the boot order in BIOS so that Ubuntu boots first it may keep the system from writing to the Windows MBR. I don't know for sure but it's something you might try. At the very least, it should speed up the Grub menu displaying since Grub 2 currently would look at sda before moving on to sdb to find the Grub files.
