scenario -

- intrepid and jaunty installed in good working order (w grub legacy)

the other day karmic alpha install attempted on diff partitions ; result, the two distros above experienced great problems at boot time (due to karmic boot upgrade - grub2 the default)

Just for users info

- will karmic and presumably the releases that follow offer the user a choice at install time (boot upgrade/update) to leave the already installed and working grub legacy untouched and just create grub.conf for the new (to be installed) release ?

It is my opinion that it should be user's choice to upgrade to grub2 the releases that use grub legacy.

any input appreciated, tu.
