grub.conf doesn't load automatically


I realize this is mostly a cosmetic issue but when my box boots up it boots into the grub command line and to see my pretty little menu I have to type
Code:
configfile /grub/grub.conf
Why is this and how can i fix it? I have a separate /boot partition with grub installed on the MBR of my drive and the /boot partition is set as grub's root. Please help. Thanks.

ln -sf /boot/grub/grub.conf /etc/grub.conf

ln -sf /boot/grub/grub.conf /boot/grub/menu.lst
