Grub problem

I have a remotely administered machine that has lost its boot sector.

We've created a grub floppy and reinstalled the stage 1, 1.5, and 2

Now on reboot we're getting a message that says,

"Console redirect"

and the machine freezes.

As far as we know, console redirection is not enabled anywhere on the

So.... Is it possible that grub used some random file rather than its
stage 1 loader?

The machine has a boot partition, and we used

grub> find /grub/stage1


grub> root hd(0,0)
grub> setup hd(0)
grub> root hd(1,0)
grub> setup hd(1)

to install the bootloader on both RAID-1 mirrors. Grub installed
everything without any errors.

Anyone have any suggestions? I'm pretty stumped....
