  on the disk you need a boot loader to point at the correct
  disk (usually the same one, but not always!) and off you go.

  The trick is getting that done. As I said earlier (at least I
  think I did), the grub install command (grub-install?)
  refuses, saying something about no partition found. However, I
  can mount and read files in the partition, so that's not
  exactly true.

Well, some thread here people are having problems, and there are

I know grub uses that hd(0,1) business that is hard to get your
mind around... so there is that part of the equation also...
