Hi Keir and Ian.

Thank you both for the rapid answers. I'll give the above images a spin

Ah yes. I learned that too yesterday when running "setup (hd0,0)" in
grub. I tried to copy both /sbin/grub and /usr/boot/stage2 from the demo
CD and re-install grub in the MBR (issuing "root (hd0,0)" and "setup
(hd0,0)" within grub) but that did not seem to make a difference.
Neither behavior nor the load address of xenolinux.gz was changed.

I'll read up on what grub does, so I am sure that I am installing the
correct MBR images.
