There were a few times Simply mepis wouldn't boot and each time I used the live cd to repair grub which I installed in the root directory because at the time grub was corrupting my MBR. I could then access grub from my boot screen options menu after modifying the boot file in my Windows C directory
Now with the new version of grub that comes with Ubuntu 10.10 I can install grub to my MBR with no problems.

Urg. If there is one thing that still IRKs me about Windows after all these years it is the fact that it still insists on using MBR. It amazes that Microsoft in their short-sighted wisdom still did not include GPT support into Windows 7

Short-sighted, or perhaps by some design. Who knows?
