I tried providing :

grub > root (hd0,0)
grub > root(hd0,1)

......

and everything but it dint show any reponse positively.
All it says that partition not found.

Why so?Is the complete Linux Screwed Up?

How can I login into the machine just through grub?any idea?

One thing to ask you people.
Generally I read the Doc saying :
1. Insert the CD-1
2. type : linux rescue
3. Select appropriate Keyboard and other stuffs
4. And Then Comes a major confusion.

Code:
Please Click Continue and /mnt/sysimage will be the mount point for your system or select skip to not perform the step.(Not exact wordings)
Code:
|continue|
Code:
 |Skip|
And Say if I click Continue it should show me /mnt/sysimage.right? Buj its surprisingly not Displaying me any partitions.

please suggest me the appropriate steps to fix the grub.
