You're right I was using Knoppix as the host distro,
however I've just re-compiled Grub in LFS, copied all
the stage files across and run Grub and re-booting
still gives me GRUB Read Error. :-(

Its a stage1 reported error so "GRUB Read Error" is
all you get unfortunately!

I'd been doing some searches prior to posting and one
I read was to use 'd' with the install command in
Grub. <cough> Can't find that web page now for
reference. But didn't have the confidence to start
playing with that particular command in Grub. Anyone
know enough about Grub to know what the install 'd'
switch does and if it could cure this problem?
