Windows and FC3 and Solaris---and only Solaris boot error message


I have got no problem to boot any of these OSs (Windows, FC3, Solaris), on my laptop, after two days from installation , I tried to boot into Solaris, I could not, and I received this error message:

(( Boot Solaris

rootnoverify (hd0,2)
chainloader +1
makeactive
boot

cannot find solaris partition)).

I checked fdisk -l the output was:

[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l

When I installed FC3 and Solaris 10 again from scratch, and I checked fdisk -l again the output was:
