indicating that was not a proper assumption. Yes the second makes use of

As reference  says "...your new system has no kernel installed and
is also missing ..." The instructions it gives are not
suitable for my environment.
Can someone recommend a reference that covers my circumstances?
chroot to the new install and install a kernel normally (apt-get install
linux-image-amd64 or similar).
That got me pointed in the right direction. In my case I want
linux-image-686-pae to match my existing system.
I'm in process of chasing down changes needed to reference local DVD
rather than the ftp site.
Install os-prober if don't already have it in the main system (the one
that houses grub), then update-grub should find the new OS.
os-prober is installed and functioning on the existing systems. As part
of my self-educations and trouble shooting I've had as many as 4
instances of Debian on my hard drive at one time.
