Summary:  Installing MS's MechCommander2 Kills GRUB

Original Submission:  I have a dual boot system with Win98 and RH7.2 using GRUB 
0.90 as comes with RH7.2.  I boot off a single 20G HDD, partitioned with the 
Linux stuff up over the 14G mark somewhere.

I installed Mech Commander 2 from Microsoft.  On the next boot grub came up 
with a text prompt only which I didn't worry about, instead booting the RH 
install CD and reinstalling GRUB from the command line.  Later I uninstalled 
MC2, and GRUB failed on next boot.  I can reproduce this problem after both 
installing and uninstalling MC2.

I reinstalled the MS MBR and can uninstall and reinstall MC2 with no problems 

Hopefully I'm the only poor sod this happens to.  Somehow, I suspect I'm not.
