Ok, not getting any response here, probably means either:

Would someone be so kind as to explain... & perhaps, if necessary, direct me to a forum that might actually be able to help me problem solve here?

In principle, the right list for obtaining help with GRUB would be

But in practice, I'm not sure if there will be people there who can
provide user assistance.  Therefore user questions are tollerated in

I'd really like to make help-grub the user support forum, but since I don't
have more time to volunteer myself, I'm not sure how to make this happen.

FWIW, if anyone who reads this is willing to help the GRUB project by
watching help-grub and helping with user requests there, he/she's more
than welcome to do that.

Hi Robert (& any one willing & or able to try & help here, in some way),

I do appreciate your response. I did a search & found the grub-help list, I signed up, & now know (at least) probably not much help there.

Perhaps the simplest request, since I tried reinstalling it, then uninstalled grub2 (& grub), tried lilo, then installing (I think) legacy grub (this thru synaptic p.m.), & I just read (a portion) of the grub manual... & do believe I got, previously, some possibly dangerous advise previously on grub-dev list (grub-install), but in any case, if I just knew where to find relatively clear information on how to configure (or whatever needs to be done to connect a fresh install of grub (or grub2) with the kernel, & or whatever is necessary), considering I am booted from a disk (pmagic), which uses grub2, v. 0.97-os.1, into my OS, Debian Lenny, sid/squeeze, kernel 2.6.32, this might be of some help. In a *cursory* look thru the grub manual, I couldn't find this.

& by the way, this version of grub allows my monitor to work in correct resolution, with out problems (trying to fix this, was original cause of my problem/s here, apparently, the startup-manager would not connect its parameters with grub). I think the version of grub2 that got 'upgraded' was v. 0.973-alpha (alas,not really sure of this, in any case, it was the latest upgrade just several days ago).

Hoping this make enough sense to possibly advise a trail toward resolution.
