update!!!!
in grub.conf   there is this  notice

Notice: you do not have a /boot partition this means that all kernel &
initrd paths are relative to /  root hd0,5
kernel  /boot/vmlimz   version ro root=/dev/hda6
initrd /boot/initrd-version.img

i did create a boot partition
i got to this file    by doing this

chroot /mnt/sysimage
vi /boot/grub/grub.conf

what do i do from here?
