Help me:(linux can mount the fat32 correctly,but dos can't recognize the partition.)

I have some question about fat32 to ask,
There're two harddisks in my computer,I have installed three operate systems.the first disk is win98 in drive c,winxp in

drive d.they are all fat32 filesystem.the second drive is linux (ext3).one time the boot record about Grub is lost,so i use

the following command to rescue it.(i can't remember very clearly!)

install (hd1,0)/boot/grub/stabel1 (hd0) p (hd1,0)/boot/grub/menu.1st

after i reboot the computer,the system stoped at the "grub" displaying in the screen.It can't boot linux.
Then i boot computer to DOS,the command "dir c:" tell me the drive c is invailde,
fdisk only know the size of drive c,but display the system of drive c unkown.
then i try the
then the grub can boot up,i can mount the win98 partition successfully.All the files in the partition are correct.
I have use diskedit,nu8,pq6 for dos,but they all can't access the drive c,PQ can only tell me the drive C is fat32 and the

size of it.
I check the MBR,I think it may be correct.May be the problem is in the first sector of drive C.

Can anyone help me?thx!
(My English is not very good,please don't laught at me )
