Grub prompt on boot, boots with diskette


I recently installed Rehat 9.0 and during installation selected to create a boot disk (thinking this was similar to a Windows boot disk -- that I would just need it if my system got messed up).

Now when I boot the system, I get a grub prompt. If I boot with the disk in, it boots like normal. Did I screw up the installation? How do I make it so it boots right into the Linux installed on the hard drive? Thank you.
