Say I install 9.04, is there anyway I can untick the Grub 2 update when updating to 9.10?

Grub 2 really sucks IMO.


Also would 9.10 run on:
Fujitsu Amilo Li1718
ATI Radeon Express 200M
Intel Pentium Dual Core @ 1.73GHz
2GB RAM

when you mean by upgrading from 9.04 to 9.10, grub2 won't be installed, it must be a fresh install,,i too upgraded from 9.04, and remained on grub as the default...so go ahead...;)

i'm stuck in 9.10 with lowsy drivers and cant play anything (as if i didnt have graphic card)...

Its not driver support I'm worried about. I can get around those, I've done it loads of times before.

I just hate GRUB 2, and it hates my laptop :P (and dualboot, by the looks of things)

as for grub 2, when i was updating my ubuntu 9.10 it was among the updates, and i downloaded it, but during installation i was asked if i wanted to use grub 2, beacuse it will change something (i didnt read what).. i clicked no and i'm still using grub 1.98...
