GRUB problem/reinstalling Fedora
 
I recently played with partitions and I messed up my boot loader so I had to fdisk /MBR to boot into windows, but now I can't start FC4.I tried booting from FC4 DVD and:

linux rescue
chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub
root (hd0,5)
setup (hd0,5)

and then it said like found both grub stages but it couldn't write embdd ... or something.

Then I tried grub-install /dev/hda but it still won't work.I really don't want to delete FC4 so I'm asking you for help.
Also, if I re-install FC4 will it overwrite my home dir and files in it?

Anyway, how should I fix this?

grub
root (hd0,5)
setup (hd0)
quit

try that :)

Try a recheck of the drives:

grub-install --recheck /dev/hda
