Fedora does not load up after software raid


Hi,

I have the following proble.I am trying to set up a software raid server using tow 80GB sata drives.I followed the steps mentioned in http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=3022.I have used these steps succesfully before.All installed fine,but when i boot up all i see is the grub configuration screen.

in other words,all is see is

>grub

(no linux loads up).I just used the default settings whith grub while installing.

what can this be?Must i reinstall the bootloader?How will i do this?

Thanks for any help...

Hi i now have the following problem.I have the system running with software raid,but it only boots up when both hard drives is in the system.If i take out either one it does not want to boot up.

Here is my grub.conf.

Code:
 grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd1,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/md1
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/md0
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp ro root=/dev/md1
        initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4smp.img
title Fedora Core-up (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/md1
        initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
Also cat /proc/mdstat gives me

Code:
Personalities : [raid1]
md2 : active raid1 sdb2[1] sda3[0]
      1052160 blocks [2/2] [UU]

md1 : active raid1 sdb3[1] sda2[0]
      76991424 blocks [2/2] [UU]

md0 : active raid1 sdb1[1] sda1[0]
      104320 blocks [2/2] [UU]

unused devices: <none>
can somebody please suggest something maybe?If i take out either one of the harddrives it tells me hd1 is missing
