Joe, and/or others,

To clarify my understanding. One of the reasons I did not use Grub in the
past was that I didn't understand how it worked.

When using Lilo it edited the MBR, correct? What is happening now when
using Grub? What is in the MBR now? It doesn't change? Does the MBR now
refer the boot process to Menu.1st?
