That worked! I didn't see the option to boot into Gnome. Later I will reboot
that computer and see if it is in the logon screen but it seems to have
totally integrated  into my Gnome programs. This means I will not need or
want grub on that machine. However I am going to check out that
www.tldp.orgToday I have collected several sites with useful
information. Thanks for the
help guys.
