/dev/hda5 * 776 779 32098+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda6 780 2498 13807836 83 Linux

Disk /dev/hdb: 20.5 GB, 20547841536 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2498 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

hi

if you haven't let every new distro to install a new bootloader and you have not a partition dedicated to /boot
it should be something like that:

Code:
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title Fedora Core (2.6.x-x.xxx)
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.x-x.xxx ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
	initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.x-x.xxx.img

title DSL Distro (2.y.y-y.yyy)
	root (hd0,4)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.y.y-y.yyy ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
	initrd /boot/initrd-2.y.y-y.yyy.img

title Slackware Distro (2.z.z-z.zzz)
	root (hd1,0)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.z.z-z.zzz ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
	initrd /boot/initrd-2.z.z-z.zzz.img

title Phlak Distro (2.v.v-v.vvv)
	root (hd1,4)
	kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.v.v-v.vvv ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
	initrd /boot/initrd-2.v.v-v.vvv.img
where x,y,z,v are the appropriate numbers from its distro

in anycase you may post your grub.conf and we will try to fix it.
