Unhappy Grub nightmare

I suppose this could be in a more general folder but here is my problem, i have installed windows xp on a sata 3 drive raid card and then i installed fedora core 6, and now when i boot i got to a grub command and then it wouldnt do anything, if would not let me type anything, i went into the rescue console and reinstalled grub, and then next time it said "grub loader 1.5" but then my computer just reboots, i have windows on the 1st partition, (should i say i did, im not convinced its there now) and fedora on the 2nd partition.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Could you please clarify. When you boot does grub go straight to the command prompt? Does grub skip the boot menu entirely?

sorry i have only just got back onto the internet, basically its sorted, what was happening was grub would load stage 1.5 and then restart the computer repeatedly, this was because i had installed grub to the mbr, and then pointed it to load from a raid array which was F'ed i had a raid with xp installed partitioned, but then ignored the raid, and installed fedora ALL OVER IT, lol noobs, arent we the best?

Thanks for the reponse though
