OK, I think it's a an idea to install grub from within the installed partiton.
1) Boot up any live cd
2) mount mepis someware I'll call the device /dev/hdb2 and the mountpoith /mnt/hdb2 -- change as neccessary.
3) chroot the mountpoint withCode:
su - [rootpass if needed] chroot /mnt/hda2
4) mount /boot withCode:
mount /dev/hda5 /bootCode:
6) make sure your /boot/grub/grub.conf is ok for booting, the section on linux should read somthing likeCode:
title mepis kernel (0,4)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb2
now save it, and exit, and try and reboot.
