Angry bootloader problem in fedora with windows


Hi guys
I have Fedora core 4 in my system later I installed win.XP as a result my bootloader GRUB corrupted so I am unable to boot to linux. I tried to reinstall bootloader by inserting linux CD-ROM and running linux rescue mode .i chrooted to /mnt /sysimage and issued command “grub-install /dev/sda1”as my hard disk is SATA and boodloader was in sda1. I got message
/sbin/grub : command not found
and nothing happens after existing rescue mode so what should I do .

Grub-install is just a script.
So if it didn't work, let try to install by grub it self
First run the command
Code:
grub
This will give you a grub console where you can type grub command.
The type
Code:
 root (sd0,0)
setup (sd0)
This command worked on my PATA drive however, I haven't try it on SATA since I don't have SATA
