    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    Try
    Code:
    grub> setup (hd0)
    This installs it to the first sector of the first drive. Then
    Code:
    grub> root (hd0,3)
    
    grub> kernel  /boot/vmlinuz 
    grub> boot
    [edit] Kode, you beat me to it...geez, I can't even delete this post now; it's been replied to!
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Solved. After getting Error 18, I went into the BIOS and just put everything back to the default, and now it works.

    Now, I have some work ahead of me, getting my other OS's back. But that is the easy part.

    Thanks for your help Flatline, Kode and Dapper Dan.
