It's a normal bios (non uefi) and mbr partitioned. Does that mean I have to have a boot partition at the beginning of the disk?
Coreplayer2 I forgot to include I also tried those commands at the grub rescue prompt, it came back with error: unknown command.
It's been a year or so since I've worked with linux, and have forgotten a lot. I know there was trouble last time I tried to install grub but don't remember how it was solved.
Edit: Here's my disk layout
tc@box:~$ fdisk -l
