Replying to myself: Found instructions on PCLOS forum. It appears
that if the grub2 partition is not too far into the HD, the normal
PCLOS "redo MBR" will automatically put in a simple stanza that looks
like any other legacy boot stanza in menu.lst, and the grub2 OS will
boot, just like any other. Apparently there is a problem if the
partition is too far into the HD, but I didn't run into that.
I entered "grub2" into the search box in the PCLOS forum, and it
found a thread. The answer for me came in about the first reply,
from Old Polack, so I tried it and it worked.


Blessed are the peacemakers..for they shall be shot at from both sides.
