Grub Screwed me


I installed fedora core 2 with out any problems... I used grub as my boot loader.. and installed it in my Master boot record like usual.. but when the installation was complete and I rebooted.. all I get was a blanks screen with " GRUB " on it.. no prompt.. no user input .. nothing.. does anyone have any suggestions...??

I installed along side my win xp partition.. but that didn't seem to be a problem in the past...

thanks in advance
ps. I just tried reinstalling fedora again... same thing...
