I guess I'll improve on the googling then.

Yes, it ate it. That is to say that when I went back to menu.lst, the first
and longest module line was gone. OK, I will dselect me some grub. Any
special precautions I should take. I don't care about the SuSE
advertisement. I already have a .92 tarball of grub from gnu that I haven't
installed. Should I just go that route instead. I mean I'm not real clear
on the risks of changing the boot loader. Right now the SuSE grub version
has controll of the mbr, right? So, should I extract the new tarball from
SuSE, or is it just as safe to dselect sid grub and install from the sid
