Toby: M$ is completely unaware that any other OS exists. Or, they will
never admit to that.  However, 1 or 2 days ago, I saw a listing for a
temporary job assignment in Redmond, WA, with "The Software Giant",
for someone to work with a team of people who are the only ones there
who work with Linux. They are the "Linux experts" in that place.  I
assume it is for M$, but not positive about that.   :-)  There is a
web page on the CentOS Wiki about how to reinstall GRUB, if it gets
trashed or is overridden when installing another OS.    Lanny
