Ubuntu installed, but with no boot loader
After two days of fighting with Ubuntu, I got it to install on one problematic machine, but with no boot loader. This is the message I got during install:
"You will need to boot manually with the /vmlinuz kernel on partition /dev/hda1 and root=/dev/hda1 passed as a kernel argument"
When I booted up I got to a prompt that asked for a user name. I gave root and got a prompt with no password. What must I do now to get grub installed and to have a gui? The install disk does nto have an option to just reinstall grub, and after the fight that I had to install it, I'd rather not take the risk of reinstalling it. (yes, I know that Ubuntu is supposed to be an easy install and it was on every _other_ machine that I'd installed on.)
Thanks in advance.
