>Hi
 
>I was forced to install Windoze(don't ask) into a partition on my drive containing two LFS systems.  As usual it took over and rewrote drive no's.  I was able to boot with a Live >rescue disk and chroot into the latest LFS and reinstall Grub into the MBR successfully and update the grub.cfg file and fstab to take account of drive no changes.  
 
>The system now boots okay, but only to the grub command line and not the menu.  I can get both LFS's booted okay and have checked everything, but get no menu.   Any suggestions?

Done it again sent message in HTML format. Sorry

Problem solved though.  grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda6 was the command needed.   I has omitted --root-directory=/mnt 

thanks
