Does the Kubuntu installation from CD/DVD use grub-install?

My laptop has three 20Gig partitions with an old version of PCLinuxOS on hda5, 
Mandriva 2008.1 on hda6, and kubuntu 8.04 on hda7.  I had to reinstall 
Mandriva and now when I boot I get a grub menu with Mandriva as the first 
entry.  When I scroll down and select the kubuntu entry it takes me to 
another grub menu, presumably the one I had before reinstalling Mandriva.  
I'd like to get rid of that first menu.  Would running grub-install in 
kubuntu do it?

Don't need an oven timer; just the smoke alarm.
