    Can you use the redhat 9 cd to boot into your Linux install, and try to reinstall GRUB from there?

    Well, then I suggest you do that . It's easier to install GRUB from within Linux then from a floppy or CD.

    grub

    if u are reinstalling the grub it will not work. here we have two stage of boot loader. the satge 1 is there in ur MBR stage 2 is there in ur /boot directory or partition.. u are getting grub command prompt y because ur second stage loader is missing. do the following commands. u have windows also right?. so i hope windows is installed on c drive? if it is like this do the following
    grub> rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    grub> chainloader + 1
    grub> boot
    these three steps for booting to windows. do the following for linux. i hope ur linux boot partiton on /dev/hda2
    grub> root (hd0,1)
    grub> setup (hd0,1)
    grub> kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-4 ro root=LABEL-/
    grub> initrd /initrd-2.4.21-4.img
    grub> boot
    if ur boot partition is there then this will work.
    regards v
