grub-install /dev/hda1 installs to the boot sector of the first primary
partition, not the MBR, so fixmbr won't touch it.
What problem are you trying to resolve?
(If /dev/hda1 is a Windows XP system volume and it no longer boots due to
installing grub in its boot sector, you might be able to use XP Recovery
Console and the fixboot command.)
