possible to change GRUBs?

Hi,

I'm currently on a new dualboot setup and I'd like to change the order of GRUB's boot options as well as change the GRUB being used. 

More precisely, I installed Ubuntu alongside Crunchbang last week (ended up being a mistake) so I'm now using Ubuntu's GRUB with Ubuntu at the top of the list.  Is it possible to change it so that the computer will launch Crunchbang's GRUB with #! as the primary boot system?

Thanks!

I'm sorry, but that command doesn't solve the problem.

Install grub again to the MBR of the disc you are installing from.
Double check where first, with

sudo fdisk -l

Assuming /dev/sda

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
