Right.  It puts back what was there before.   What we need is 1) a facility for 
the MBRs and PBRs prior to grub installation; 2) a facility for restoring a 
vanilla MBR
and PBR if necessary, without overwriting the partition table; and 3) a 
facility for
restoring former MBRs and PBRs that have been saved.   And this really ought to 
be done
within the linux environment, without falling back on that unmentionable M$ 
stuff (even
the free versions). :-)
