Sorry Aaron.  I did miss your question.
My bios is set up ok.  It knows where to put stuff and it does a great job 
of it.
This computer has installed FC1, 2, 3, 4, 5, just great. And recently the 
latest version of centos without any problems with where should go or with 
grub working or not.  And since we were talking last I took fc6 off this 
computer and put on centos again and its grub went on just fine.  So, after 
making some notes as to where it put grub, I am about to take centos off 
and to install (fresh) fc6 again.  I bet it won't work..

I suspect something wrong with this first cdrom disk..???
