Thanks all for all of your suggestions.  I downloaded some of the games 
that look interesting.  Turns out I am going to have to wait to play 
them.  My video card will not support the games.  I have an old pci 
video card out of a 166...  The one game that looked particularly 
interesting to me. Armyops wouldn't work.  Hopefully Santa will be good 
to me this year!

As far as the grub thing...  I think I am going to have to swap the 
drives which I did not want to do and reinstall the boot loader.  Take 
care all!
