I made some modifications deleting such entry but now I can't start
grub from hard disk.

This is my /etc/grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
timeout 5
timeout 5
	root (hd0,0)
	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
	initrd /initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img

At start up I get a message stating that is a minimal hash for grub,
and then a grub>

Of course I can start manually, but what is wrong???

Help please... from Webmin I get the  message that I don't have any
entry for grub!!!
