Yesterday I repartitioning my HD, install win xp and

don't run at startup, and always win xp boot. I had
installed grub with default anaconda options, then, I
think that it's installed in /dev/hda (MBR). I boot
with FC5 installation CD 1 and start with linux rescue
option trying to install grup again, but, when i run
grup-install it say stage1 not read correctly.

Finally, I can't make grub to run, and I can't start
FC5.  Why it's happen and how I can fix it.

Partition table

partition 1: win xp installation - primary 15 GB
partition 2: /boot - primary 100 MB
partition 3: extended (10 GB NTFS, 3.2 GB /home, 3 GB
/var, 800 MB swap, 5 GB /)

In linux rescue (without partitions mounted) try setting the /boot partition with the boot flag, using fdisk.
fdisk /dev/hda (type p to check if the boot flag is already set, if not:)
