Suse 10.1 Grub Problems.....


I have tried installing Suse 10.1 about 5 times. Every time i boot i get an error at bootup with GRUB.

"GRUB Loading stage1.5.

GRUB loading, please wait...
internal error: the second sector of Stage 2 is unknown."

I keep getting this error,i have tried changing different parts of the installation to see if that helps. Preferably i would not like to install GRUB because Suse is the only os that is going to be on this system. The system i am installing this on is.

PII 300mhz
250gb hdd
320mb ram
pci 10/100 ethernet card
pci video card


I want to use this system for a file server and won't plan on changing much of it in the future. I currently have only a cdrom attached(no flpy or other). Please help me, i have been working on this for about 2 weeks solid now.

Boot from the installation DVD and then choose an option which says to repair an installed system or something similar. Try this at first place.

Also on the Suse install it froze every time at something catalog screen, then i added the extra 64mb of ram and the freezing stopped. Do you think that my version is corrupt for some reason, because i know it shouldnt take that much ram to inst it.
