Well something weird has happened, it doesn't display the menu again,
and all the three files are real files.

I tried to do "cat /etc/grub.conf" grub didn't find the file... and
it's there. Then I tried the same for
/boot/grub/{grub.conf,menu.lst}... same problem. I even did a "cat
/boot/grub" then I hitted tab... it seems grub can't find the folder.

I have only one root (/) ReiserFS partition, no home, no boot.

My best guess is that whatever grub is using to access ReiserFS
partitions is outdated or has bugs.
