Thanks for your reply.  Since reading it, I have read up some on the ext3 256 
byte inode problem,
which I had no clue about.  It seems to be an issue if you are trying to use a 
a pre-0.97-21 GRUB
to boot to a filesystem with 256-byte inodes (such as FC9 uses).

This is not the case for me - I am having trouble booting to a 128-byte inode 
system (FC7) with a
0.97-33 GRUB (installed by FC9).

However, I did come across this page:

  "256-byte Inodes + Unpatched GRUB = No problem"

And this one:

  "How to install GRUB on the MBR"

And I think there's enough information at these 2 locations to get me beyond 
the issue I am
