	Hmmm ... What means "reinstall" here? How do you do it??

	I did "cat grub.conf" on the #2 machine, switched to #1, booted 
rescue, chrooted /mnt/sysimage, and proceeded to edit grub.conf to clone 
#2. That failed. 

	It may or may not have to do with the fact that one grub.conf is 
full of LMV stuff and one with UUID stuff.

	Is there such a command as "reinstall grub," or do you do it by 
commanding "grub" from root and doing God knows what from there, or ...?
