Re: can't boot FC5 (grub)



When I boot on rescue mode, root partition (/) is
mounted on /mnt/sysimage, I type chroot /mnt/sysimage
to gain access and then type grub-install /dev/hda,
with this command I'm trying to install grub on MBR of
mi only disk (/dev/hda), but when it runs say file
stage1 can't read correctly, and grub don't work, is
necesary to indicate --root-directory= too, and
--root-directory= is /boot partition?

Greetings
