Yes: /boot is a separate partition all unto itself by default.  You need
to mount that too, otherwise you are just looking at the empty
mountpoint directory.  It will need something like this in your case

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/fc6/boot

In case it is needed, here is an example /boot/grub/grub.conf from my box

default=0
timeout=1
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro quiet root=LABEL=/
pci=assign-busses
         initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.img

Did so, but there is no grub.conf file in /mnt/fc6/etc. And,
furthermore, I cannot create it on /mnt/fc6/etc.

Any further ideas?
