Thanks for your reply,

there is one drive (SATA-150) in this system (a laptop).

Before things went wrong I was using the grub legacy coming with ubuntu
gutsy (0.97-29) and I played with the grub2 coming from ubuntu as well

About the modules I'll have to check how ubuntu compiles the packages.

What I did now however was to repartition & reformat the disk and I can
finally boot the beast again :-)

Before I did so, I backed up the MBR and had the hope that I could
reproduce the freeze again, but instead the system was booting as
well ...

Yet what I see is that the restored partition table is different from
the one I originally had (all logical partitions are lost now) ...

So can it be that grub2 is doing some magic with the partition table?

Thanks anyhow :-)
