Linux kernel install screws up

So, la, la, I installed a new Linux kernel the Debian way.  Everything wonderful until I rebooted.

Quel Horreur!  I get the horrible 'grub rescue' prompt.  Believe me, after several hours, there is no way out of this hell.

Then, lucky me, my other Linux computers helped me make a Debian rescue live dvd (my computer refused to take a rescue usb).  I used the 'rescue text', and just followed the results to reinstall grub.  Now it works perfectly.
