I solved my problem, more or less. The MBR is basically the problem. I
have a fairly large raid array (1.5 tb drives) and I should have
partitioned the drives differently instead of just doing it the easy way.
The fix is to use the --force option when using grub-install. #
grub-install --force /dev/sda
I still cannot use the latest kernel .25 but at this point I will stop
upgrading the kernel and I will do a complete re-install instead in the
late future. It is just my home computer so its not the end of the
world by any means.
Also, sorry about the double email I did earlier. I hope it was not too
annoying to anyone.
Thanks for every ones help on this too.
