Yes, I have already modified menu/lst (which is link to grun.conf) to list the options for the various partitions.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'Are you using the MBR to boot?'. How would I know?
I was able to boot into the /dev/sdb1 partition, which is now /dev/sda1, for some reason. That's okay. I want the grub.conf in that partition to be the one that is booted from and where grub.conf comes from. But I ran the following and received errors:
> grub-install /dev/sda
/dev/sda does not have any corresponding BIOS drive
The same happened if I run 'grub-install /dev/sda'. So, I'm still trying to make /dev/sda1 the main boot partition and for that to be where the grub.conf file comes from. Any ideas?
