    Error 15:


    I finally got grub to work properly. I installed Redhat again just to see what the grub.conf looked like, and sure enough /dev/sda1 is seen as (hd0,0) even though there is an ide hard drive installed. What was most confusing to me was the output from grub after running grub-install. For anyone with a similar problem, I'd definitely reccomend trying (hd0,0) in grub.conf. I believe the real problem is that the IDE hard drive is a slave on the secondary channel which would put the SATA drive as the first drive grub sees?

    Code:
    livecd / # grub-install /dev/sda
    Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a long time.
    Installation finished. No error reported.
    This is the contents of the device map /boot/grub/device.map.
    Check if this is correct or not. If any of the lines is incorrect,
    fix it and re-run the script `grub-install'.
    
    (fd0)   /dev/fd0
    (hd0)   /dev/hdb
    (hd1)   /dev/sda
