Re: LILO --> GRUB
You can try zeroing the MBR (not including the partition table) and rerun
grub-install. Try the following:
dd if=/dev/hda of=mbr.bak bs=512 count=1
this will make a backup of your mbr including the partition table. Then run:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=443 count=1
After the 443 byte it is the partition table so it is recommended not to zero
the partition table or you will really cry. Then rerun grub-install /dev/hda.
If something happen, you can then restore the mbr again.
