Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

Installer couldn't find menu.lst.

On my 9.10 system, I get, from grub version command, ...
/grub$ grub --version
grub (GNU GRUB 0.97)

But ls command in /boot/grub directory gives ...
/boot/grub$ ls
915resolution.mod efiemu32.o ls.mod reboot.mod
acpi.mod efiemu64.o lspci.mod reiserfs.mod
etc.

I seem to have newer version of grub. I answered N to the (y/N) grub update question during the
update process.
