Uninstalling grub, cleaning the mbr

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello together, I'm dualbooting Slackware and Gentoo on my homeserver. Some weeks ago I built grub with a slackbuild-script, it was the new version of grub but it did not install properly. Since then I could only boot Slackware but not Gentoo. Today I tried to install grub from the Gentoo-partition (I chrooted to Gentoo). This did not work due to an errormessage of grub that "stage1 could not be read". Afterwards I tried to install lilo, this failed at first attempt, but the with some warnings lilo executed. When I rebooted after the lilo-install, I had grub again at the bootscr (HowTos)
