Boot from your RedHat install disc 1 and go into rescue mode

boot: linux rescue

Once the process starts and finds your install let it goto a prompt.

Chroot to your installation

/sbin/grub-install and the path to your MBR. If it's scsi it should be
/dev/sda if ide /dev/had.

I would also check your grub.conf file and make sure it's intact.
