When I try to login it says:

The system Admin has disabled your account.

chroot /mnt/sysimage
grub-install
grub-install /dev/hda

Someone elses todl me to do this in order to see the boot manager when I start my computer, it works but I can't login.

so i assume that you're at a graphical login screen, yes ?
in username type root and use your su password.

even if you're at a text login type root and use your su pwd.

I also assume that you installed the system and have su ability...
