Displaying grub's installation info - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi there, Is there a way to display the information used to install grub in the MBR, basically which partition grub will use to display menus, etc? I have a machine with Linux installed on 2 separate partitions /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2. To my amazement, grub uses the menu in /dev/hda2... So I imagine it was installed with root (hd0,1). Is there a way to display if there were any other parameters stored? Thanx Dan...
