    Welcome to the forums sujith

    The grub manual will probably be handy ... can you boot any version of Linux or get to a grub prompt? If you can't then you are going to have to boot from a live CD.

    When you get Linux to boot open a terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    su
    fdisk -l
    and post the output here ... the -l is a small L not a one.

    Let us know which OS you have installed, which partitions you installed them to, and what you did to install grub during the install process for each OS.

    ... if you can get to a grub prompt type
    Code:
    find /boot/grub/menu.lst
    find /boot/grub/grub.conf
    one of these should give outputs something like
    Code:
    (hd0,0)
    then type
    Code:
    root (hd0,0)
    configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst
    boot
    replace (hd0,0) with the results of the find command ... this should get you into Linux and you should then be able to open a terminal and run the fdisk command
