Re: New testing install; no /boot/grub/menu.lst exists.

Thanks.  That's looking very tempting at the moment.  So far, I've not
solved it.

It would not be unwise to switch to Grub 2 (the new Grub that's slowly becoming the default in many distros). It stores its configuration in /boot/grub/grub.cfg (not in menu.lst anymore) and is every bit as capable as grub legacy and then some (for example, it can boot some live CD.ISO images -- such as Ubuntu -- from your hard drive; also, Grub splash images are fairly easy to implement; and pre-existing systems on your hard drives/partitions are detected automagically and added to the Grub startup menu; it's also more consistent IMHO). The configuration is not handled by directly editing the grub.cfg, but by modifying the scripts in /etc/grub.d and then running update-grub.
