install grub

How can I install grub in fedora (I've overwtritten by windows installer)

[root@localhost dev]# fdisk -l /dev/hda
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 9168 9308 1132582+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda2 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 14 9167 73529505 8e Linux LVM
/dev/hda4 9309 9729 3381682+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 * 9309 9707 3204936 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 9708 9729 176683+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Working GRUB configurator (/boot/grub/menu.lst):
title Fedora Core (2.6.17-1.2139_FC5smp)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2139_FC5smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2139_FC5smp.img
and this not works:
# grub-install /dev/hda
/dev/hda does not have any corresponding BIOS drive.
the same problem for hda1, hda2, hda5, etc.
(I am not in rescue mode, does it mind? If so - how can I boot/enter rescue mode?)

This is the link to the GRUB manual that will explain how to install GRUB. Using grub-install is less safe than installing GRUB natively.
