Hi !

First, boot with the liveCD. Use the installation guide in the chroot section in a console (mounting disks, proc, chrooting). Once in your chrooted console, edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and correct the path. Then reinstall grub in your MBR :

Code:

grub

grub> root (hd0,x)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> quit


where x is the number of your boot partition (starting with 0).

Just so you know, GRUB does not need to be reinstalled every time the config file is changed. This is one of the many advantages GRUB has over LILO.
