Sorry to hear you have been having that many problems, John. All I can
say is that GRUB also let me down a few days ago (read 'GRUB Blues'
thread posted recently). In my case, I believe it might be BIOS fault,
but I could workaround it anyway (by manually configuring GRUB at every
boot... =/ ).

Hope GRUB installation (and GRUB itself) improves on FC2.
