Open SuSE doesn't install GRUB.


I just installed open suse 10.0 and its working ok except for one thing. Grub is not installed, nor is any other boot loader for that matter. I just did a default gnome desktop installation.

I can obviously boot from the cd but thats a pain in the arse, can anybody tell me how to install grub to the mbr? Preferably with the usually SuSE look and feel...

boot from the cd, open yast and go to the bootloader configuration section check your settings and resave. or you could do grub-install /dev/hda from the root prompt
