Re: [PLUG] reinstalling grub

I have had problems with grub on drives with S.M.A.R.T. turned on in
the BIOS (a colleague has suggested that it be called D.U.M.B.).  With
it turned on, grub wouldn't install.  With it turned off, grub would
install, but if I turned it on again, grub wouldn't boot.  On that PC,
I just had to leave it turned off in the BIOS.

Yes, I know that am shooting from the hip in the dark, blindfolded,
and hoping to dust the wings of a moth at 50 paces...
