I posted this past week about grub-common confusion that turned a simple
legacy install into a long session.  Grub-common rides in with legacy and
makes an /etc/grub.d directory and scatters files all over the /boot/grub
directory, including grub.cfg .  But then it just sits there and tries to
look like Grub-PC is installed.

My system still boots off /boot/grub/menu.lst, kernel updates and update-grub still
modify menu.lst, ^c still drops into a grub 0.97 terminal from the boot

I did another legacy install last night.  I do think I remember getting
Grub-PC in some dependency resolution, but I was able to remove it and
install legacy without forcing anything.

Kind Regards,
