Nenad, those commands worked as far as getting the grub installed. 
Thanks a lot!

When I boot now, I get
GRUB loading, please wait...
Error 2

I must be missing something else. I booted the rescue disk and did a 
mkinitrd with virtio_blk and virtio_pci just to be sure, but still get 
the same Error 2 after stage 1.5.  I was sure to modify my grub.conf to 
ensure I added a /boot/ in front of all the paths since I am using a 
single partition for everything.
