This is a whole lot more complicated, I think, that the simple steps
Felix proposed!

Actually the way I wrote so much and not in the form of an instruction list
probably made it more confusing and look more complicated than it is, plus
writing fstab where I was supposed to write menu.lst, and forgetting about
setting sda1 active didn't help.

You're forgiven :-)

No data was lost, a large part of that being die to the fact that all
the real data was in LVM, which is pretty hard to scru-up een if you
badly hose your partition table :-)

I do a lot of cloning and moving things around, so much that things become
second nature, and thus easily forgotten in the process of documenting.
Leaving out of my
reply was bad too, but as you can see there, installing Grub really need not
be that complicated a process.

Now that I know I agree. :-)

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
