Fedora Core 3; GRUB error 2

Lo there,

Just reinstalled FC3 again, but upon boot I'll get this:

GRUB Loading stage 1.5....

GRUB Loading, please wait
Error 2

I've searched on google and found MANY solutions but none of them worked, yet.

The server is a P4 2.8 ghz, with 2 x 80 gb RAID hd's

There is a RAID array.

grub root (hd0,0) setup (hd0,0)
install went fine, same error

grub-install hangs.

GRUB Config looks like this :

title Fedora Core 3 (Latest version though)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/image.file root=LABEL=/
initrd /boot/initrd.file

After many changes I got this conf.

$ df, says :

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 160gb 1% Used, mounted on /
and some other which I don't know

I've tried so many solutions, but couldn't get further on. :S

Everything I can find on using grub to boot a RAID array, says:
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
instead of the setup (hd0,0) you used.
