help with grub command line

I was installing Mandrake 9.2 on my computer. I created a partition for it since I have Windows 98 on it as well. In the process of installing the packages it said there were errors installing some of the packages so basically my system couldn't do anything. Now each time I reboot my system, I can't go anywhere except this grub command line. How can I fix this?

follow up with problem

Yeah apparently when I was installing Linux, there were errors reading some of the packages. Do you think I can reinstall windows into my computer and fixing the problem?
