[kde-linux] Grub fails to load after non-proper shutdown

I know this might not be the right place to ask, but here's what concerns me:
I am using SuSE 10.1 and my / partition is formated with reiserfs. If for some 
reason my system is unable to shut down properly (e.g. something hangs badly 
and I have to reset, or even if I reset when nothing has gone bad, with 
little things running and no heavy disc usage), Grub fails to load when the 
PC boots. It hangs at "Grub loading, please wait..."
If I boot a live CD, it replays the reiserfs' journals and then Grub starts 
just fine.
Any ideas how I can fix this? Maybe have Grub located on a nother partition? 
Why is it so bad if some transactions are not complete? This renders my 
system unbootable (?!?), and doesn't seem right on a Linux box, proud that is 
stable and kicking.
Is there a way to replay my file system's journals quicker than launching a 
Live CD? The only thing that comes to my mind now is set up a small system on 
separate partition, and boot it only to replay my main system's journals. But 
this sounds like quite a nasty work-around to me.
