Hi Okuji, thanks for the reply.

Nothing. Grub doesn't write to it, if there is one it doesn't get changed, if 
there is none it doesn't create one.

Grub uses /boot/grub/grub.conf, that's clear from the menu it shows. There are 
symlinks from menu.lst and from /etc/grub.conf to that file. You may be right 
about the boot sector. I just did "make install", should I also run 
grub-install? I didn't think about that since there was an earlier grub 
installed and my guess was there's a difference in the binaries, not with the 
boot sector. If so, should I install it to MBR or boot sector? How can I 
determine now which way it is currently installed?
