The simpliest way to deal with that is to install Grub again and it 
erases the preceeding one.
Each time I install a new distribution besides one existing, I reinstall
GRUB on the MBR. The installer of the new ditrib. proposes it when the 
install is almost finished, shows the other OS it has detected, be it 
Windows or a Linux distribution or more (I've got 3 on each machine). 
Then the new grub installed writes to his configuration file and puts en 
entry for each OS detected.
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
