    What guide did you follow if not what were your exact commands you used, what hardware do you have, why are you using grub instead of lilo. A that and more is important info needed by anyone to answer your question.

    Based on the huge wealth of information you provided, my guess is you can't fix it.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Post the contents of grub.conf ...........if you cannot figure out where this file is located or what a grub.conf is then you should probably go back to windows
    I like to think but the promise of easy answers is hard to pass up
