Got it.

Booted Kubuntu 7.10

sudo mkdir /mnt/root
sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sda2 /mnt/root

sudo mount -t proc none /mnt/root/proc
sudo mount -o bind /dev /mnt/root/dev

sudo chroot /mnt/root /bin/bash
sudo grub

find /boot/grub/stage1
--> NOW grub finds the file
root (hd0,1)
setup (hd0)

And then it all Just Worked.

So I needed to mount proc and dev (which I hadn't done, the first few 
times I tried to fix things). See 

Thanks all
