Actually, I did rerun it and it worked better - I didn't have to touch
dir since grub had created it.  I didn't have problems with active
translators, which surprised me.

It did have problems both times when attempting to create fstab, but I
was able to create that by hand and things are running pretty well

Thanks for all the hard work you've done Marcus!
