Grub Error 17: won't load after I add a new partition with cfdisk

I decided to add a new partition for /var , as it was beginning to fill up my root partition. so I added a new one with cfdisk, and then my whole partition numbering changed - every partition got incremented by 1. so I changed everything needed in fstab, then rebooted, and then grub gave me error 17 - I needed to boot up with my Debian CD, delete the new partition and then reboot again.
What do I need to do in order to prevent this? when I was using lilo, I just ran `lilo` after making a change to the partition table or kernel, and it was ok. I assume there is some parallel action needed to be done in grub, but what would it be ?
thanks in advance.
