Now, I just did 2 more installs, turning off my speakers first, neither 
of which installed a byte of grub to the /boot partition.  So I rebooted 
a third time to the live image, and found no trace of a grub in any dir 
of the live image boot. So there is no chance of fixing the installers 
hiccups. I think this last time I had it save the logs to the boot 
partition on this drive, but I'll be damned if I can find them.

I did find a way around formatting the disk, but the first time it 
mentioned installing grub it wanted to put it in the MBR of /dev/sda1, 
which I refused as I'll goto the bios boot menu to boot from the chosen 
disk.  So far I have managed to keep it from screwing up the boot from 

WTF? I am running out of patience, and didn't have a whole lot to start 
with.  And at 83, I don't have enough hair to keep from sunburning my 
head if I'm out for half an hour.

Next, i'll do a full shutdown and exchange the drives, putting the new 
one in the sda position, and this one in the sdb position (I have a 3 
drive quick change cage from tiger direct in this box) and see if it 
will boot this system from what will become /dev/sdb.

So here goes nothing...
