Yes. Although the "after some reboots" result of having hd4 correspond
to sda is strange.

May be we should've also used "search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set
59c82698-6fcc-4512-a51c-261348d637da" rather than "set
root='(hd2,msdos2)'" just to be sure to be using the correct

However, I'm not sure that it would've worked. Even though you can
chainload grub2 from grub1 with "kernel /boot/grub/core.img", I can't
seem to be able to chainload grub2 from grub2 with "linux
/boot/grub/core.img". "configfile ..." workd (thankfully) but it isn't
quite what I wanted to check... Sorry.
