Don't know what to tell you, sport.

Show us the contents of your grub.conf and /etc/fstab. That would go a long way the helping us help you.

In my experience, grub is fairly easy to configure. But, info from grub.conf (menu.lst on some distros) and /etc/fstab is CRUCIAL to solving these problems.
