Did you try "grub-install --recheck /dev/hda"
(assuming you want grub installed on the MBR)?

If it still goes to the wrong boot, try
grub> configfile
in your interactive session,
to see where it thinks your grub.conf is.
Maybe the link between /etc/grub.conf and /boot/grub/grub.conf
got broken in some way.
