Thank you Eric.  That worked.

I was looking at some old notes on how to reinstall GRUB1.  It sure
looks like reinstalling GRUB2 is a lot easier than reinstalling GRUB1.

In addition, after removing an old kernel, the use of GRUB2's
"update-grub" command is a lot easier than using vi to edit the old
menu.lst file.

GRUB2 is a nice improvement.
