This is way off topic for this list, but I didn't know where else to
send it. I'm hoping the Dell people on the list will get the info to the
relevant people (or to me, if I'm wrong)...

I bought a pair of Dell's Inspiron laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed,
and there seems to be a significant oops: updating the kernel (or
removing an old one) scribbles on /boot/grub/menu.lst and tells grub to
go to hd0,0 for the kernel -- Dell has partitioned the disk so that
hd0,0 is a Dell utilities partition, and grub needs to go to hd0,2.

A few minutes after starting this machine, Ubuntu says there are updates
available, but when it installs them, the computer bricks. Editing
grub's config file before restarting (or during boot) fixes it.
