@Debian:~$ dpkg -l | grep grub
ii grub 0.97-64 GRand Unified Bootloader (dummy package)
ii grub-common 1.98+20100804-14+squeeze1 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (common files)
ii grub-pc 1.98+20100804-14+squeeze1 GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (PC/BIOS version)
Grub2 is apparently installed. I intend to apt-get purge grub-common and grub-pc and then apt-get install the
packages again. Unless someone tells me not to do this.
I understand that the installation scripts should then give me the option to chainload grub2.
I am somewhat concerned that grub is now a dummy package. Is it possible that if I purge grub I will not be
able to reboot?
dist-upgraded - sounds more or less like it didn't install the new grub and grub config at all. You might try loading the system in rescue mode and doing the install the packages manually.
I think the chain loading might have been referring to noticing the NTFS partition and wanting to know if you wanted to include "chain loading" to windows.
These are all assumptions I an in no way a expert. Sounds interesting though. I'd like to read the solution.
Does the location of the grub.cfg and grub files change from being stored in the /boot/grub directory between grub and grub 1.99?

I have a dual boot computer with Vista on one disk and Debian on the other.
I recently dist-upgraded from Lenny to Squeeze. The configuration
script asked if I wanted to chainload grub and I chose not to chainload.
Now I see that it was a mistake to choose not to chainload because
legacy grub only has the older kernels in the menu and now the system
is not really working properly.
So how do I set up the system as if I chose to chainload when I dist-upgraded to Squeeze?
