Easy - google "reinstall grub redhat"

You'll probably come up with something like this:

/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda
.. or ..
1. Boot into "rescue" mode from install CD

2. Mount your actual filesystem
EXAMPLE: chroot /mnt/sysimage
3. Re-install grub to the MBR
grub-install /dev/hda
4. Reboot
Substitute your actual boot drive for "/dev/hda" in the examples above.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

Have a look at this tutorial (chapter 8).

Kind regards,
