The best solution for you is copying the info about OS's (end of menu.lst) of the new distro(should be more updated) for your mint menu.lst, after that
#grub-install /dev/sda (for example)
To reinstall Mint's GRUB to MBR (not sure if this does it, but almost sure)
so i think you'll have the same first menu, with mint looking =)
Well - I tried using grub-install /dev/sda, that didn't work.
So I decided to try it from the livecd of Mint, using
#grub-install --root-directory=/dev/sda2 /dev/sda
...and that worked.
I really have no idea why it didn't work from the installed system.
