kill grub rescue

I didn't think I had any part of grub installed.However, after frying something on my system (I think), I saw a message saying "grub rescue >" when I powered the thing back up. I had earlier removed a directory called grub from my /boot partition, never proceeding further because everything seemed to be alright. Now, I suspect I've got something buried in my boot sector - or in something pointed to by the boot sector.

So, is there any package that pulls in grub as a dependency? I'm writing this from an Ubuntu machine and the closest it comes is a package called "ubiquity" that recommends grub.

Also, what is a good way to nuke anything with grub in it? I use lilo and not aware that I've ever installed grub, not even once.

Re: kill grub rescue

Guessing here as you've haven't provided much info...  rerun lilo and it will install itself to the mbr.  The "grub rescue" thing is probably appearing because there is a grub stage one bootloader currently installed to the mbr.
