Late last week we had a very short power failure down here in Batemans
Bay. The up-shot was that it corrupted some system file(s) on the
Windows XP side of my dual boot desktop PC. The only fix was a
re-install of XP. After the re-install I could not boot Ubuntu on the
second hard disk - I totally forgot about the MBR! (you idiot).
I Googled for several days trying different solutions but nothing seemed
to work. Then I half remembered a note I had saved in my personal "How
To" directory (on both XP and Ubuntu) about fixing Grub. The note turned
out to be a saved copy of Mike Carden's post to this list on 22 Sept.
2006 on "Grub trouble". His notes were clear and succinct and better
still fixed the problem.

conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the
