I just checked Kdiskfree to take a look at my partition table (make sure
that /dev/hda1 was the /boot), and I've noticed that, in addition to
whatever is wrong with the MBR or boot loader, my swap partition seems
to have completely disappeared.
I tried to install grub, but apparently I am not translating the man
I'm not sure how to recover my swap partition, either.
This is all rather odd...
