	Rick's definitely right. I don't know why or what I,m doing building 
grub-1.95 from scratch.
1. I see that you can get it with the package manager. I don't really  
need it!
2. I don't understand how grub-mbr Windows and Linux boot..
3. 2 out of 3 partitions won't boot now.
4.Gutsy switches between hda and sda now in the menu.lst.
5. Grub uses Hd0 etc...instead of hda 0r sda
6. Gutsy started using uuid=xxxx... instead of root/dev/hda in the  
7.When they say root =(hd0,0) in the menu list or grub prompt, what  
is that
pointing at? Hd0 is obviously the Windows hda HD.
8. What does it mean when the win 98 flashes through the boot splash
screen then drops you into a C:> prompt?When you try and boot it.
9. I think I grub> setup hd0  and later  did fdisk /mbr to it. I  
don't remember now!
10. I got all confused over this but I'm glad Kubutnu Gutsy keeps  
11. I like how Dolphin and Kate work together.
12. It's probably better to have 1 distro per computer.
