    The program 'grub' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:

    Code:
    grub-install -v
    GRUB 2 should display a version number of 1.96 or later. Legacy GRUB is version 0.97.

    eg
    Code:
    glen@MavMusic:~$ grub-install -v
    grub-install (GRUB) 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu3
