Actually I did that but there was no solution
like you said:
# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# grub-install /dev/sda
I even tried:
# grub-install /dev/sda2
# grub-install /dev/hda
but there was no possitive result and couldn't boot at all.
I tried installing FC9 but there was no sucess at all.
I guess I'll wait until CentOS 5.2 its released, because my subscription to
Red Hat will finish sometime in September, mean while I'll test Xen under
Thank you all.
