Error occurred while installing bootloader

Hello everyone,
First time install for linux SuSE 9.3. I'm able to boot off of CD and get all files copied over to hard drive, but once bootloader begins to install i get a message stating:

Error occurred while installing GRUB
GNU GRUB version 0.95 (640k lower/3072k upper memory)
[Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word,
TAB list possible command completing anywhere else TAB list
the possible completions of a device/filename.]

grub> setup--stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0) (hd0,2)
Error 22: No such partition
grub> quit

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or what I need to do to get past this.

This error occurs when GRUB runs automatically as part of the install process? I.e. you aren't running GRUB manually or anything?

If you can run as a live CD or if the installation disk has a rescue mode, boot into it and run the command (as root)

fdisk -l

and post the results.
