Control Centre/Yast2 Modules/System/Bootloader/Bootloader 
Installation/Other/ReRead Configuration from Disk/Finish and the 
configuration for grub will be rewritten to disk.

(Above from doing a "dry" run and without actually redoing my grub setup 
but,from memory, it is what I did a while back on SuSE 9.3 when I was 
fooling around on my test computer and things got a bit messed up. Also, 
the above are from SuSE 10 but the Bootloader is still to be found in 
the Yast modules.)


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought 
that tragedy is just around the corner.
