Grub looks pretty much as you specify.:

sh-3.1# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf

#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp)
       root (hd1,0)
       kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.img
title Windows XP
       rootnoverify (hd0,1)
       chainloader +1

I would try saying "grub-install --recheck /dev/sda".

sh-3.1# grub-install --recheck /dev/sda

(fd0)   /dev/fd0
(hd0)   /dev/sda
(hd1)   /dev/sdb

Actually there's no floppy drive installed in the Dell.

It also tells me if any of the above is incorrect, fix it, and re-run grub-install. Looks ok to me? I suppose I might try swapping sda and sdb as was also suggested, if that works it would be easier than opening the box and swapping cables, etc.
