Thumbs up Hard disk freezes while installing GRUB


Hello,
I have a fc4 linux installed. Recently reinstalled WINDOWS. So i had to install the GRUB using FC4 disc 1 in rescue mode. When i gave the command, the hard disk light goes off for 10 seconds (seems as if it is going to sleep mode) and then returns to normal mode. But the computer will be hanged and grub will not be installed.

So I reinstalled FC4 thinking that fresh installation might work, but unfortunately after the completion of installation, i was surprised that the boot loader was not installed.

I again tried the rescue mode, but the same problem repeated.

Can anybody figure out what is the problem.

Thankx
