                 Summary: GRUB unable to install or find MBR boot info in

             Open/Closed: Open
                 Release: 0.95
         Reproducibility: Every Time
         Planned Release: 



The system uses an ASUS K*V-X motherboard, with an ATA disk on ide0 master
(hda) and a SATA disk on the first SATA channel (sda).
The config file grub.conf (with menu.lst a link pointing to it) is
default 0
timeout 15
title=Slack 10.1
root (hd1,1)
kernel /bzImage-H1 root=/dev/sda5 ro
map (hd0)(hd1)
map (hd1)(hd0)
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
chainloader (hd1,0)+1

which is setup (hd0) ok.  The device.map shows
(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd0)   /dev/hda
(hd1)   /dev/sda

However, when the system is booted, the menu is not reached, but a grub
prompt appears.

Giving the Slack 10.1 commands "manually", followed by 'boot' boots the
system ok.

Doing setup (hd1) does not help.

Changing the BIOS ordering of disk and exchanging hd0 and hd1 everywhere does
not make the menu appear, but the system still boots ok "manually" using the
(changed) lines in the menu (Slack 10.1), no matter if setup (hd0) and/or
setup (hd1) is done.

Probably I have overlooked something simple - but what?
Googling has not given any usable clues.
