So I booted normally to F10 & kernel 2.6.34-rc2, and I have now tried
to add a chainloader stanza to my grub.conf here on /dev/sda1 that
will cause it to reload grub from /dev/sdb1.
Is anything missing?
Two things. Confirmation that there really is a GRUB in /dev/sdb1's boot
sector and not in /dev/sdb's MBR. And you forgot to show what you added
to your F10's grub.conf.
1. I told it to put it in the MBR.
That would be /dev/sdb = (hd1) and not /dev/sdb1 = (hd1,0).
The string 'GRUB' exists in the MBR, but
there was a grub 2 install there prior from a mint8 install.

The comment is wrong. It tries to chainload /dev/sdb1 not the MBR.
The "makeactive" or "makeactive 1" typically is not necessary.
Do you see (hd1) in your F10's /boot/grub/device.map?
And what does /boot/grub/device.map on /dev/sdb1 contain?
order, all bootable disks are listed in sata jack order, skipping the
Terrabyte drive I use for amanda.
