Problems after linux installation

I originally posted this over at the Fedora site, but with my vast linux experience, it probably should have been here!

To start out, I know zilch about any flavor of linux. I just downloaded Fedora Core 2 yesterday and installed it on a laptop. I believe I used the defaults on everything and installation seemed to go fine. However, when I rebooted after installation (and everytime I turn it on), I get a black screen w/ grub> Hitting Tab will give me a list of possible commands, but I tried them all and am not getting anywhere. I've reinstalled it twice with the same results. Thanks for any help and sorry if this has been discussed before.
