I have installed grub2 on my ubuntu test installation to make some progress :-).

apt-get install grub2 and then grub-upgrade has again erased first
track of my hard drive. Why is grub installation doing this? Why
grub-setup has to overwrite this area of boot hard drive with stage1.5
? This wipes out truecrypt residential code and makes impossible to
work together with TC.

I am grub2-newbie, is it possible to do something like (grub.cfg):

if !truecrypt_present ; then
  load_truecrypt (hd0)   # this actually loads truecrypt similar way
to chainloader
