FC5 DvD Install Boots Grub Command Line


I have tried several variants on the install, but in every instance I reboot to a grub command line, and I am clueless. I can't do anything with grub.conf, because I never get Fedora to load. I have chosen the defaults, added a boot option for the boot sector of the drive, and no luck. Any suggestions to get the boot loader to go would be great. thanks.

Are you getting Grub error 17?

No error messages at all. Just the grub prompt and no boot loader.
thanks
