    Try the rescue option again. On the rescue screens, as it is booting up, it teels you how to do a chroot. Read the instructions, and post back if you have trouble doing it.

    You need to take your time and read what it says when you are getting into rescue mode.

    justlinux.com gave me step by step instructions and it worked.

    http://www.justlinux.com/forum/showt...hreadid=113286

    1. Boot your machine from your boot media (cdrom1) and select linux rescue to install to the command prompt.

    2. Redhat 8.0 displays a message “If you would like to make your system the root environment, run the command: chroot /mnt/sysimage”.
    Go ahead and do that.

    If you are running a different distro or you don’t get that message, you can proceed as follows.
    · Run mkdir /mnt/sysimage and mount it with mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/sysimage.
    Note: hda1 is where the linux system is located, yours may be different.
    · Now run chroot /mnt/sysimage to make your system the root environment.

    Type the command: rdev to find out what partition your root is on.

    3. Get into the grub configuration utility with the command: grub.
    · At the prompt grub> type the command: root (hd0,1) ; this will tell grub that the linux files it needs are in the second partition (1) of your first hard disk (hd0). Change this to meet your configuration needs. For instance, if the linux files are on the first partition (0) of the second hard disk (hd1), then type root (hd1,0).
    · If you selected the correct location (where linux is installed), you should see a message as follows.... Filesystem type is Ext2fs, partition type is 0x83.

    · Then issue the following command: setup (hd0) ; this will install grub in the MBR of your first hard disk. You could change that to use the /boot partition if desired.

    · Exit the grub utility with the command: quit

    You can also try to use grub-install /dev/hda to install grub on your first hard drive's MBR, but the method described above is the preferred one.
