I'm sorry I'm not on my Debian Squeeze machine now. I'm away from my Desktop Pc-
I'm using my Win's 7 Sony Vaio to help you.

From the Debian Webpage for public key:
http://keyring.debian.org/

In the past I had trouble with a public key and a member here helped me. I'll go and find the Solved thread and post it for you.

Here is where Mr. Evo helped me to solve the gpg key problem that I had.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...te-4175426643/

How's it going?

Ok, you want to install Grub 2. Before you do are you in a dual boot with another operating system?


"Debian Squeeze and later"

Grub "v2" for Debian (package grub) can be installed with:

apt-get install grub

http://wiki.debian.org/Grub

If you have already successfully installed Grub; re-boot your computer.

After your system re-starts your system will automatically boot to Debian (if you arranged it that way)
If not; Backtrack will boot first.

Which ever operating system you arrange to boot first will boot otherwise use the up, down, left, right arrows to boot which operating system you want to use-

Ok, I explained what is going on in this thread in a new General thread that I posted.
I have asked if other members here if they would jump in and help me to help you because I am out of ideas.

Grub 2 shouldn't be difficult perhaps I missed something so I will re-read the instructions:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2

You are welcome
Stepping up to the plate and saying that even I needed help I knew was the right thing to do.

I didn't know BTW that Grub 2 is the default boot-loader for Ubuntu.....I just found that out-
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

And I also didn't know that:
no changes are made to the GRUB 2 menu until the update-grub command is run as root.

Which makes sense because Ubuntu is Debian based-
