Is there a standard way for installation programs to read data off the 
currently installed GRUB loader?

I installed RedHat 7.2 and RedHat 7.3 on the same machine both using the 
Grub loader on dev /dev/hda master boot record.  When I installed 7.3 it 
overwrote the bootloader from 7.2 and I had to manually figure out what 
needed to go in the grub.conf files and run grub-install.  I would imagine 
if I added Caldera or Debian to this system they would also install there 
own copy of Grub and overwrite the existing ones.

It would be nice if there was a standard way for install programs to get 
this information from the installed loader and just add there entries to 
what can be loaded.
