It looks as if they are still carrying that separate boot partition problem too.
First, copy "message.elyssa" from /etc/grub and put it in /boot/grub. You can use SuperGrub to boot into the install if you wish. Don't fix anything with it, just use it to boot with. Then change the line in /boot/grub/menu.lst below from:
That should get your nice boot screen when you get done.
Remember the menu.lst and Linux kernel are in the /boot folder so thats where the grub kernel should point to, not /.
Assuming you are booting from sda, you need to reset the pointers to the /boot partition. Use SuperGrub to boot into your install. Again, don't try to fix it with SuperGrub, just use it to boot into the install.
Once in the install, open a terminal and type:
This installs the grub kernel to the mbr of sda and points to stage 1.5 and the menu.lst on your /boot partition. Reboot and hopefully all will be well.

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and each time expecting a different result.
Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
