Follow-up Comment #6, bug #31425 (project grub):

sdc is where the grub boot files are. Have attached a full output from fdisk
-l for you to see. You will note the /dev/dm-0 /dev/dm-1 and /dev/dm-2 which
are LVM things. Could this be a cause? 

4 drives in BIOS Order:
Disk /dev/sda: 300.1 GB (form XP drive now data, was bootable)
Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB (windows XP drive bootable)
Disk /dev/sdc: 1000.2 GB is the Proper Linux drive
Disk /dev/sdd: 1500.3 GB (ntfs data drive)

So I am back to working system with maintainers GRUB version 1.98+20100804-6
and manually removing the /boot. 

However during the various testing I think 1.98+20100804-6 and version 1.99
(self build) were getting mixed up during the grub-install /dev/sdc command
and this is why: In my panic I did and apt-get install --reinstall grub
forgetting I wanted grub2 so got grub 0.97-63. I then manually edited ONE line
in /boot/grub/grub.cfg taking out ONE /boot prefix and then did update-grub
and I noticed that ALL /boot prefixes were removed. Course things were not
good cos I was booting with grub 0.97-63 with some grub2 stuff. Hope my
bumbling and rambling helped.

Attached copies of grub.cfg (installed is the one made by grub and myedit is
my removal of the prefix /boot)

(file #21787, file #21788, file #21789)
