simpler grub reinstallation
I've been talking with fellow Ubuntites, and I get this complaint: When something (i.e. Windows) overwrites the MBR and thus gets rid of the installed boot loader GRUB (which means, if you're a newbie, that your Linux installation disappears), the only way to fix it is to boot into rescue mode and repair everything by hand by reinstalling GRUB.
What makes perfectly good sense to these people (and I agree) is that there should be a boot option on the Ubuntu CD (or perhaps within the installation) for just an automatic installation of GRUB (and not the whole Ubuntu system) which would auto-repair the damage done.
When installing Ubuntu, the auto-detection already works perfectly fine. When it finds operating systems on the hard drive, it puts up a menu option for each. It should be trivial to implement this feature many people have asked me about.
