can't find grub
After installing Fedora Core 4,it supposed to display boot loader (grub) to choose to run fedora or other OS's but it didn't?
i tried to install the Grub using first boot cd using "linux rescue" and trying
grub-install /dev/hda but the same problem
can i found solution for this problem...!!!??

what does happen then? when you run grub-install is there no error message or anything?

list the filenames of /boot/grub directory and the content of /boot/grub/menu.lst here

The screen information of fdisk -l is helpful too.

If you watch the response from grub-install it should have told you if the command was successfull or not.
