SCENARIO: grub-0.93 downloaded and installed per LFS BOOK 
instructions.

Works fine.

DILEMA: i miss my boot image.

QUESTION: let's say i found a patched version of grub 
that has already been
patched with splashimage support. (yup) If I were to 
install it only as far as
copying the stage* files to /boot/grub (just the steps 
described in
chapter06/grub.html), would i have to enter into the grub 
shell and rewrite the MBR?

I don't think so because as i understand it, the 
splashimage is a feature handled by stage2.
But I would appreciate a concensus before i go and 
accidentally destroy something.

thanks,
