problem wit GRUB..post 6.0 install


I have finished the complete installation of LFS 6.0,
but when the system boots I see this

Loading e2fs_stage1_5....
Loading grub please wait....

Then it takes me to the grub screen,
I can boot the kernel from there with

kernel /boot/lfskernel-2.6.8.1
boot

and everything works fine.

I have removed the e2fs_stage1_5 as per a suggestion on a previous thread but it didn't help either

I have searched through the other forums here on linux questions and can't really find anything related to this problem.

I forgot to mention I used the bootable LFS cd as the host to install 6.0

Thanks.

What exactly is the problem?

Is it just loading slow or something?

No it's not that it is loading slow...grub won't boot the kernel I have to do it manually,
it won't autoload...it's almost like it can't find the "menu.1st file"
I have tried many different things from other threads here on linux questions,
but none of the methods seem to work so I posted here on the LFS because
I thought it might be a LFS issue...some thing I might have done wrong along the way,
still not sure though.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Can you post a copy of your menu.lst file? Maybe we can find the problem there.

The menu.1st is...

default 0

timeout 30

color green/black light-green/black

title LFS 6.0
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/lfskernel-2.6.8.1 root=/dev/hda1

I used the LFS 6.0 boot cd to install LFS

Not to get on another subject(problem) it also doesn't bring up eth0 either..doesen't exist,
I have checked and rechecked the files for both grub and network...
recompiled grub,the kernel and bootscipts
is it possible I have done somthing wrong on the install,
If so is it possible to correct from this point without having to start all over again.

Thanks

Try rename menu.1st to menu.lst
