You may need to reinstall grub -
If you still have your linux rh disk 1, have your pc boot  with the cdrom
and type in "linux rescue" at the prompt and follow the instructions as you
go along
do a chroot and you can edit your grub.conf from there. You may want to do
an "fdisk" just to see how your partition tables look like
