You don't need to uninstall the MBR portions of grub2, the syslinux install will just overwrite them. Then just remove the grub2 package (after syslinux is set up) if you want to free up the disk space.

Unlike the other box where I did this, it did not go smoothly this time.At computer startup, it will tell me that "Boot failed <Hard drive model>".When did you see the message? Before the syslinux menu or after? If after then it clearly the syslinux issue.
