Don't just put it on your list, try this now. I've
done this enough times. Something like:

Boot to live CD
su to root
mkdir /mnt/hdc1      #/boot partition or / if no /boot
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1
cd /mnt/hdc1/
chroot /mnt/hdc

have a look at /boot/grub/device-map to see what grub
think your disks are


root (hd1,0)  #your /boot or / partition
setup (hd0)   #your primary master

close the terminal window and reboot.

Should have you back on your feet if the problem is
with grub.
