did you create a /boot partition in addition to the root (/) partition? or did you just create one linux partition and install everything on there?
basically all you need to do is look up how to write a grub.conf file (the config file that is used when installing grub) and run those commands from the grub prompt to get your system up and running
assuming your linux boot partition was hda2 and your root partition was hda3 you would say something like this: (type enter after each one)
grub> kernel /linux-kernel-filename root=/dev/hda3
1) the first command root tells it where to look for the kernel NOT where your root partition is, so on the next line after the "kernel" command, /linux-kernel-filename is the relative path from wherever you told it to look for the kernel.
2) The second part of the second line tells it what you actually want to mount as the root partition after it has found the kernel.
3) remember this is assuming that you did create a /boot partition and that your kernel is located in /boot. if you did not create one, and instead installed everything on one partition, you would still set the first line to root(hd0,1) BUT also set root=/dev/hda2 in the second line with the kernel file path being relative to the "/" directory.
Feel free to ask if you have any more questions or if this does not work out for you. Try searching for how to work with grub though, it will serve you well in the future
hope this helps,
