How do I fix a "Grub read error"??


Well it looks like I screwed up something.
My grub will not load now. "Grub read error"

/etc/grub.conf


# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd1,0)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdc1
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd1,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ #hdd=ide-scsi
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title DOS
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


I have a floppy boot disk tha allowed me to get into linux.
The syslinux.cfg from the floppy

from floppy syslinux.cfg

[i]
default linux
prompt 1
display boot.msg
timeout 100
label linux
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.img hdd=ide-scsi root=/dev/hdc1
[i/]
My linux is located on hdc1. Is grub trying to read it off hdd??

Where is the problem is it in the grub or the mbr?
Do I need to change grub?
Do I fdisk mbr?

Shouldn't this be:
Code:
root (hd2,0)
Hope this helps...
