I did /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
and I got an "install finished" message, which seemed to indicate that 
all was well, but a subsequent reboot produced simliar results as 
perviously, only, instead of a screen with only "LI" in the corner, it 
have "L  80  80  80  80  80  80  80"
adding another 80 every 20 seconds or so.  I grew tired of the 
proliferating 80s and flopped in the floppy and rebooted.
Is this really bad news?  Does it mean my MBR is all hosed or something?
