Unhappy Problem with the Installation of RH9


Salam Every One
Guys i am new here and need a little help from and hope you will help me .
The problem is that i Installed Red hat 9 and the installation was succesfull but when i restart the system the boot loader was not installed
Only Xp boots .Then i again tried to update the Boot loader from the Cd but in Updation the update option for the boot loader was disable and i am not able to select that I selected the "new configartion for boot loader" but at the end i give an error that the configartion made could not be done because the kernel is not installed i then udated the packeges and installed the source for the kernel again but still it doesn't works .
Note that i am using a 80 GB hard drive and installing the linux after 60 Gb but a month before the linux works good on the same partition that i am trying to install it now, but after a month the linux went down and now i have this Problem.
I will be very thankful if some one help me
