I have always been wary of messing with GRUB. Just knowing that doing something wrong could stop you being able to boot into an OS, so 9.10 updating to GRUB 2 concerns me since people are always saying about how updates can cause problems that weren't there before.

What are the chances that when i upgrade to 9.10 GRUB 2 will mess screw up somehow?

I get paranoid easily.

You shouldn't believe everything people say...

grub 2 is very strange imo at first glare (and editing) but you shouldn't be too concerned about it until something goes wrong :D

To ease your transition you might want to grab a copy of Super Grub Disk. That way if worst comes to worst you've got an easy way of restoring a bootloader or booting your system.

Grub2 is fine though. I don't think you'll have any problems.
