I have installed the patched Grub2 that Colin has in his PPA & done the
normal updating that he requested including confirming that it is
installed to my first drive. It is the only grub installed on my system,
so I feel very certain that I was using it during my timed run last
evening. To re-confirm:

address@hidden:~/Desktop$ sudo grub-install /dev/sda
Installation finished. No error reported.
This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/
Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.

(hd0)    /dev/sda
(hd1)    /dev/sdb
(hd2)    /dev/sdc
(hd3)    /dev/sdd
address@hidden:~/Desktop$ grub-install -v
grub-install (GNU GRUB 1.97~beta3)

Is there anything else you want me to check?
