grub hell! oops. i meant help

here's my scenario .

original config:

/boot is /dev/discs/disc0/part1 ext2
swap is part2
/ is part3 ext3

i wanted to use reiserfs so i made a reiserfs partition on another drive.

booted on a cd (system rescue cd)
mounted my / ext3 and my new reiserfs
did a cp -Raxv *

added an entry in the menu.lst file

booted to my newly created partition . all was running ok. you can tell the difference in speed between ext3 and reiserfs

so i made the decision to make my / ext3 to reiserfs
did the whole thing over but backwards

booted . grub error 18

so i did a grub-install so grub can recognize the new filesystem

booted to it, it worked.

had it shut off for the night, this morning i booted my comp and the wonderful "GRUB" all over my screen looping infinitely.

any help would be appreciated.

side notes: installed lilo and upon booting i get
L 02 02 02 02 and so on ...

Re: grub hell! oops. i meant help

im ok now. i fixed my own problem. setup (hd0) is using wrong options for the install command. so i used install manually in grub.
