NOTE: I have some questions at the end, so if anyone does not care to
read by explanation of how I fixed the problem but is still willing to
me, just scroll down.
I'm SOOO sorry to have wasted all of your time.
I just figured out a way to get my computer to boot temporarily. I did
Booted off the Live CD.
Pushed escape and then enter to go to the non-gui boot list.
Pushed "c" to go to a GRUB command line.
Typed it the following:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-5-386 root=/dev/hdb9 ro quiet splash
And viola!! Everything booted fine.
Of course, I already had edited my /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst
Anyway, now that that is all said and done, any tips on how to reinstall
GRUB so that I don't have to boot off the CD and type that at each boot?
I tried running the following:
[Note that I am now able to copy-paste because I can boot into my Hoary
installation and use Evolution. It'll be much easier now for me to
of you the output I get from commands (before I was typing it all up

Anyway, I rebooted and got the same Error 15.
Any ideas on how to reinstall GRUB to the MBR or what I might be doing
