sorry i'll edit it if i can, it was urgent because i was afraid to reboot, i didn't know if i could reboot safely without killing my window install and getting killed by my family.
Grub gives virtually no error, it does detect my win install and ask if i wanna install on mbr, (win is on hda) but gives a "fatal" error. then if i so no to installing on mbr and choose sda or fd0 it fails as well (without even reading the floppy). It should be noted that grub gave an error on boot (it wouldn't load) as soon as i had disconnected hdb and now that i have hda, hdb, and sda it is fine to boot either hda or hdb. I was really confused so i tried ctrl+alt+f4 and found the text console behind the gui (i did install gui) and it says it can't find /sbin/grub-install the actual error is:
running chroot /target /sbin/grub-install --recheck "(hd0)"
chroot: error cannot run /sbin/grub-install: file or directory not found
but thats cos grub-install isn't in /target/sbin its in /target/usr/sbin...
