grub-install


/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda comes up with a error of 'Unknown Partition Table Signature'
I can't get the MBR to write on /dev/hda.

try using dd to write zeros to the master boot record after you back it up of course and then reinstall grub.

or if you have a windows 98 bootdisk do a fdisk /mbr and then reinstall grub.
