i posted a message earlier, unfortunately, i received no responses.  so i
guess i'll ask a different question.

i've moved my HD from one system to another.

is it possible to rebuild the MBR?  i'm booting from a promise controller.
 initially i was booting from the primary controller but now i'm booting
from the second ide contoller now.

i'm assuming there is a mismatch.  i guess need to boot off of the generic
kernel and reconfigure.  i have a great deal of information on this drive,
so i would really not like to do a reinstallation.
